Last day in Fujian Province





































Today is the last day in Fuzou. We went to a museum today while we are waiting for Lily's passport. The weather here is very hot around 95 and very humid. Lily is warming up to all of us more and more each day. She is sleeping very well and eating alot. Last night we went down to a park that is close to the hotel. There were thousands of people out dancing in the park. It was very neat to see how when the sun goes down the people come out. During the day when it is hot there are very few people in the same park. We went shopping today at what I would call a flea market. They had about anything that you would want, alot of junk and alot of very nice handmade crafts, china, tea sets we bought a tea serving tray for 80.00 HBG which is around 13.00 us money. Nick bought a hand carved pipe for some reason. It was funny watching him bargain with the salesman, since they don't speak english they were typing what price they would sell for on a cell phone and Nick would type what he was willing to give. Eventually they agreed on a price.








It is almost impossible to make a phone call so Mom and Dad I have tried to call each of you, but I can't get a line out. The only person we have had any luck calling is Blake and I don't know if that is because we had him added to our international call package on our cell phone. I have been told that when we go to Guanchouz we will not have as much of a problem calling home. Anyway I will try to keep posting here to let you know that we are doing fine. We fly to Guanchouz tomorrow at 7:40 pm.
