|Ready to travel!|
|With our guide in Nanjing, Anne|
We got packed and then went to the attached mall to get lunch. We decided today was a good day to introduce Lottie to pizza! She wasn’t too crazy about it, but it had lots of toppings she wasn’t familiar with.
After lunch we loaded down all the suitcases and headed to the lobby. There was so.mych.stuff!
We made great time to the airport:only ab hour in traffic. Our guide allowed for two. We had to pick up Lottie’s Chinese passport on the way because the officials waited until the last possible hour to have it completed. We needed it for the medical exam in Guangzhou tomorrow!

Lottie seemed to understand what a plane was and was excited about it. When we got on with all the other people and she was confined to a seat she wasn’t so excited anymore. She was too small to see out the window. On take off she went into shock but soon adjusted again. This was a good trial run for our next flight in a week which will be 14 hrs long! This one only took 2 1/2!
When we arrived at the Guangzhou Airport it was very windy. They made us unboard on the runway and take a bus to the terminal. Poor Lottie just fell asleep and couldn’t make her legs work at all. So Kris managed to carry her and his carry on and bag while Anna Faith and I handled the rest. It took another hour to get our bags and wait for our driver to show up, then a 45 minute ride to the hotel and 20 minutes to check in. By then it was almost 11:00. The girls fell asleep on the ride to the hotel and we carried them to their beds. What a day!
