The Tourist Days...

It's been HOT and HUMID. I haven't been a "sweaty mess" (as Mike said yesterday) like this in a long time. The forbidden city was breathtaking! The amount of work that went into the construction of this amazing place is just unbelievable. And it was all designed for one person. Just plain wild! I need to upload some photos and will try that this evening, the jet lag has been kicking my butt! I slept yesterday afternoon and evening and now, wide awake at 2am. We got to ride on a traditional ricksha yesterday and we toured the older part of Shanghai. We were also welcomed to visit a nice gentleman who showed us around his house and garden. Our guide, George has been a lot of fun and he's very informative. You can tell that he loves his job and enjoys teaching us about his country and culture. We were able to connect with my Mom, Dad and little Ray thru Skype and we can't seem to connect to Facebook here in Shanghai no matter what we try to do.

Sounds like fun. The boys are doing just fine. They made friends with the mutts next door and love to go out to bark and run along the fence.
