Hong Kong


Us right before takeoff.




We are here! After a long flight that was even longer after the flight was diverted to Anchorage, Alaska to let off a passenger with some psych issues (I'm not making this up). We arrived in Hong Kong about 7pm. With a 13 hour time difference that was about 23 hours of travel. Grace was a trooper on the flight and slept about 6 hours. This morning we've been up playing outside with Grace on a playground and are now ready for breakfast. As soon as we arrived here I could tell we were in China by the smells (different smells), the beautiful mountains and the friendly Chinese people. We fly to Fuzhou today and meet little William tomorrow afternoon!
