San Fran

After an early morning, and with thanks to Dad for taking us to the airport, we're now in the San Francisco airport. The coolest part of the flight here was flying over Yosemite National Park. We're approaching the end of our 3-hour layover, Jenn's walking around, and I'm charging the iPad at Gate 95/97. Let's just say I'm the minority here: Gate 95 is going to Hong Kong, Gate 97 is going to Beijing, and the voice over the PA is speaking Mandarin. This is how it's gonna be for a while.

Jenn said she's going to stuff herself on pork dumplings, and we're really looking forward to seeing Hong Kong and Beijing before we meet Henry. He's been on our minds a lot today, especially as we see little Asian boys running around the airport. We thought of him, too, as we heard kids fussing on the plane. Our level of tolerance has never been higher as we anticipate what the return trip will be like.

So far, I'm not aware of a trip we've taken where we packed better. As the days unfold, I'll refer back to this so future adoptive parents can learn from what we packed enough of and what we wished we'd taken more of or less of.

That's it for now. We'll be boarding soon.
