We made it here to Hangzhou yesterday safe and sound. This place is BEAUTIFUL!! and my dream come true on so many levels, the shopping is FABULOUS, I cannot even begin to count the clothing, shoe and purse stores all in one block.

I don't think I slept a wink all night. I'm not nervous, just excited. We ate at McDonald's last night for a quick dinner. What a experience that was. It is definitely geared towards the young crowd. When you walk up the music is blasting and young people are everywhere, we were older then everyone there by a long shot.

I had better go and pace the room for a while and get ready to go see our sweet little Ellie. We meet in the lobby at 9am to take the bus to the Civil Affairs office.

We will call and post as soon as we can.
