We made it to Guangzhou, this evening. Thankfully, we had to take an earlier flight than was originally scheduled. We made it in at 4:30pm rather than 10:20pm. It feels kind of like home away from home. Next door to our hotel is a Subway restaurant and right around the corner on the other side is a Starbucks. The island we are on is much more laid back than the rest of the city. We're both a little tired, but not too tired to venture out for ice cream. And the hotel room actually has English cable stations other than CNN World News. It feels great! A few pictures from today.
JiaLe fell asleep as soon as the plane started taxiing.
This was after the orphanage visit. Very thankful we had the opportunity to visit. JiaLe was very loved and well taken care of. He was sad to leave his nannies but seemed OK leaving. He slept both almost the entire way to and from the orphanage. I'm thinking sleep is sometimes his way of dealing with the whole adoption situation. Practically every time we enter a vehicle, he dozes off. Upon reentering the hotel, he returned to his chipper self, as seen above.
