Monday in Guangzhou

I can't believe we have had Allegra already a whole week!

We took the kids to the indoor playroom they have at the hotel. Today was such a nice day we also took them back to the outdoor playground. They had so much fun!

Allegra passed her TB test! They will issue her a Visa now. Tomorrow we go to a zoo. Then on Wednesday we have our all important Consulate appointment, then our guide will bring us Allegra's passport and visa!

Poor Gavin has gotten some terrible bites! We think they might be bedbugs because they appear when he wakes up in the morning. We had the staff take out the couch he was sleeping on and bring him a roll away bed. We hope that will do the trick. No one else has any bites. Gavin's poor ears are so swollen, he looks like he has cauliflower ear!

Until tomorrow :-)


  1. Great pics. Allegra looks so happy. Glad to hear
    Gavin has no new bites since they removed the sofa
    he was sleeping on.
    Just a few days until you'll all be home. Your
    house will be a home again.
    Love to you all.
