We have made it to Nanning. The city is very beautiful. There's lots of green plants and rolling mountains. It has a very tropical feel to it. The weather is about 83 degrees and very humid. We took a long walk around the area. There were lots of open air shopping places. Although most of them either sold cell phones or fruit! As we walked motorcycles and mopeds and cars and buses and bicycles drove all around us. It was very frightening to cross the street.

The hotel we are in is okay. It's not super clean and we have twin beds. Well, if you can call them that. They are more like boards with covers on them. They are very hard!! Jack's crib is interesting. It's very small and doesn't appear to be very comfortable. On the upside the internet appears to work better here.

The meals we had today were well not that great. Right now we're dying for some good Jim's chili, or something besides rice and noodles. I think it will be quite a while before we hit any Chinese restaurants at home!

Some of the families received their children today. The rest of us will get them tomorrow! We will have Jack in our arms in less than 24 hours! We're very excited.

Shannnon and Eric Dad and I had movie night last night and have created an ET addict. It all started with "look that's how my name starts"(E T )and it was downhill from there (sorry). We are going to the museum today and the boys have been great. Can't wait to see Jack! Love Mom and Dad

Nanning looks really pretty compared to the busier asian cities I've seen. Enjoy! Can't wait to see your post tomorrow! I'll be looking first thing in the morning so make sure to get some pictures of that cutie pie up ASAP!
