Here are some pics of our day today....


The more you squish him, the better!
Peanut butter sandwiches have been our saving grace, as there are NO resturants around here.

He loves his thumb!!
Scaring the neighbour children!! LOL





Today we had a free day. We were supposed to meet our guide in front of the Cultural Street to check on some paperwork, but we waited in the hot sun for over an hour with 4 very hungry kids and no one showed up. So we went back to the hotel. We meet her here soon after and the paper work was correct anyway.


If anyone from Children's Bridge is reading this, or if someone could possibly e-mail them as mine doesn't work....
We were just told that Hanlin doesn't need a medical done in Beijing because of his visa? Is this true? We thought that in order to get into Canada he had to have a medical. We have no problem skipping this, as we all know how "medical" the medical is.. LOL
But we thought we would try to double check.
If some one could e-mail me from CB that would be great.
Thanks

How interesting about the medical. Last year coming home with Lisa all they did was mark her on a growth chart. No blood. No nothing. She was a little raspy so it was good to get that checked out but it was really nothing. Wouldn't surprise me if they did away with it in that respect but on the other hand, the government loves their rubber stamps. :)

Love today's pictures. Oh I love Canon. LOL!! The kids look like they're having fun. Sorry to hear your guide didn't show up. :( Very disappointing.

Take care. LOVE checking in every day!!

Krista,
If you are going teh new route - Canadian citizenship right away - you do NOT need the medical in china. If you are going the old route - Permanent Resident then you definitley need to do the medical. Canadian Immigration rules, not your agency's.

Pics today are great!!! Talk soon,
Tammy

Hey Dolans!

I love the Canada shirt that Hanlin is wearing, and the pic of Lily on the sidewalk - she looks so carefree! Glad to see you all are still having a great time.

And those food/traffic signs?! OMG, too funny!

Thanks so much for keeping us all updated on this side of the world - I almost feel like I'm there with you!
