Monday at 3:30 AM

I can no longer sleep. Fortunately both Madeline and I have been sleeping off/on since 6pm last night. I feel so much better after sleeping for hours at a crack and dreaming away- the time change is certainly challenging. We woke up at one point during the night and used Skype again to talk to Grandma/Grandpa and then Dave/kids. Skype is awesome..... we can talk forever and everyone can see one another. We have been calling at least twice a day.
Before we turned in last night we walked to a park. It is smack dab in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. We hope to return this morning.
Our guide (Mr. Li) called last night. We will be meeting him at 9am this morning. We get Elijah at 2:30 pm. I can't believe that in 11 hours we will be seeing his face !!
Thanks to everyone that has sent e-mails and left comments on Blogger. We love to read them and it makes us very happy to see that so many people are following along !

Great pictures, thanks for sharing. It's cool that Madeline is part of the adventure.

Make sure you email your skype account to Jill - we found Hayden's, but not the one you are using in China. i'm set up as well - just search on "waala".

Hope you are getting sleep right now for your big day!
