We're in Shanghai!

David here.  We have finally made it to our Hotel in Shanghai:  26 hours, 2 planes, 1 MagLev Train (way cool at 430 kmh!) and one crazy taxi cab driver (think New York taxi) ...  Lois has talked with Molly (her former Chinese teacher) on the phone and she will meet us at our Hotel tomorrow.  For now, we will shower and rest ...



(Lois adds...) As you can see, the preparation and the packing are done.  We are on the last leg of the journey to Hannah.  We'll spend a couple of days here in Shanghai to visit with Molly and her family.  We're tired, but glad we have finished the long flight here.  We have a few days to rest before we see Hannah.  Saturday we fly to Jiangxi province.  We will meet Hannah in the capital, Nanchang on Monday morning China time which will be Sunday evening your time.  Hopefully we will post video and pictures of our meeting by the time you get up on Monday.  Meanwhile I'll try to catch up on some posts that I haven't had time to finish before now including a map to show where we are going, pictures of Hannah's room and pictures from our toddler showers.  For now we are going to find something to eat and go to bed.  Thank you again for your prayers.  Have a blessed day!

WOOT! I can hardly sit still in my chair as I read! I know internet access can be wonky over there and I will wait patiently till you get pictures and video, but, my waiting will be full of agitation and anticipation! This is so exciting!

Will say a prayer for safe travel and for your meeting your beautiful Hannah.

Yay, you're in China! That train looks like it would have been quite the ride..we missed out on that one. Just days away now, your lives are about to change in the best way.
