Welcome to Day 3!
Today was a travel day so not a lot action to report. But, when you are in China there’s always lots of interesting things to see. Check out the pictures below!
We headed back to the airport today to fly to our second destination: Changsha, Hunan. This is the city where the Ahern's will finally be united with sweet little Sara Jane Si Te. Airports are always a source of amusement to us. Here Jan reads the board and somehow figures out that our flight has changed gates.
China's airports are so crowded that instead of making new gates they stack airplanes on the tarmac and shuttle you out to the plane. We were the only Caucasians (with a few Asian kids thrown in for fun) on this flight. We were quite the celebrities.
We set out on foot to see Changsha and acquire snacks, water and dinner. This is not a town that is used to a lot of Westerners so we got the rock star treatment with lots of pointing, smiling, and waving by the local people.
Not many English speakers here in Changsha and no pictures on the menu, but somehow we still managed to get a meal that didn’t contain eye balls or chicken’s feet. Score one for the Americans!
Tomorrow is Sara Jane day. Can’t wait for the Ahern’s to get there Changsha cutie!!
