We went to the Zoo today. The kids had a great time. It was nice to see green plants. The animal environments probably wouldn't fly in the United States. We saw a giant Panda, tigers, elephants, and giraffes. Thomas and Madeline were quite the attention getters again today. People were sneaking pictures of Bugga with their cell phones. While we were sitting down eating a snack people kept coming up to her to take her picture. She finally started to get irritated. We told her... now you know what Jennifer Aniston feels like. Of course she didn't know what we meant. After the zoo, our guides took us all to a Latin/Brazilian Restaurant. It was great food. A big buffet and great music. The kids are starting to think that we live here. They ask if we can go "home" to the hotel. They both are learning a little bit of Chinese and know when to use it. Bugga only messed up once. She told the attendant Good Morning, last night. That's Okay, I still don't know what day it is. All I know is there is way to much time left. Tomorrow is another tour. A museum. Not for me. Barb will probably go and maybe Pete. Wednesday is Bliss' medical exam. I think it is an American Doctor. I caught a stomach virus or something. I accidently brushed my teeth with the hotel water. Pete drank it by accident the first day we were here so I figured it wouldn't bother me. Don't really know what it was but it hurts. Bliss is eating like a piglet now. She's ravenous. She can't get enough food and grunts for more. Jill, tell Kyle he has some competition arriving soon.
Oh I almost forgot.......Enjoy that hurricane. We are getting good at being out of town for them. Hopefully it stays weak. We miss everyone so much. Thanks again for all of your emails and comments. We love waking up and reading them.
