Our beast of a plane! It was a long flight, but we really didnt have much turbulence. You have no idea how thankful I was for a smooth ride!! :) Praise God!
In my mind I knew yesterday was Saturday here in Hong Kong, but I left early Friday morning, so my body seems to think this is Saturday morning. It was daylight all day and during the whole long flight. We left early Friday morning from Durango when the sun was just coming up, and landed in Hong Kong as the sun was just going down. Except that it was Saturday evening here... We had to close the windows on the plane so we all could sleep. I guess it's a trick to make you think it's an overnight flight. They served us a meal pretty soon after take-off, then a snack about mid-flight, an then breakfast right before we landed. Except it was about 6 o'clock in the evening. Weird! Ha ha
Daniel and I had a banana split and sprite for dinner in the hotel that cost about $25. Probably wont be doing that again, but what do you expect in a hotel that costs $265 a night. Lol
The view from our hotel room as the sun comes up. Very pretty
As I was looking out the window, we noticed a plane coming in to land. So I jumped up and got a picture real quick! Well, as I have been typing this, about 6 more have come in. If nothing else, we will be able to watch planes land for entertainment. Lol
Pretty cool actually! Well, we are going to head off and get some breakfast! Thank goodness breakfast comes with the price of our hotel room. With the prices of banana splits here, there's no telling what they charge for breakfast. Ha ha Really I am just kidding. This is a really nice hotel and very pretty and we love it so far! :)
I wanted to add that we fly out this evening into Nanning, the capitol city of the province where our sweet Ruby will meet us!! We heard from our agency right before we left that there was a slight possibility that they would bring Ruby to our hotel room Sunday night!! That's tonight!!! Wow! We won't know for sure until we land and meet our guide.
Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts for our safe travels! We are so excited to be here and so ready to get the girls!!
