Last Post for Awhile

This may be the last post for awhile, since we expect to get Chloe's visa and be travelling for the next few days.  We will let you know when we get home.

For now, I will let you see our day.  Chloe has been opening up and blossoming before our eyes.  There is quite a chatterbox in there.  She is turning into such a happy little girl that it just makes me want to grab her and squeeze her.  I still, at times, can't believe she is ours!  Of course, a more accurate statement might be that we are hers, particularly Cora.  We see more and more smiles everyday.

Now, in no particular order the pictures, which I will let explain themselves:








 THESE turtles were being sold as pets...I think.











 The people here are curious about us, but friendly and helpful when they can be.
I have enjoyed our stay here, and I am more than thankful for our Chloe, but it is well past time for us to go home.  I can't wait to see you all!

The lizards look like they are wanting to flash passer-byers, but the shop keeper has them turned the wrong direction.

The old man seems to be thinking, "What the hell you taking my picture for."
And who wants to guess what's going on behind the lavender umbrella. We welcome you home, but we are going to miss all these wonderful pictures.

Chloe has really blossomed...she seemed very pensive or stoic and you can see her personality emerging!! Safe travels!

Jim,
Thanks for all the pics! Love the pics of your beautiful DAUGHTER. The top one of Cora and Chloe look like they a plotting against you... I can see the wheels turning in Chloe's eyes. I've also loved the pics of China. Please continue to post when you get home. Have a safe trip home.
