Well, here it is, 6:05am and 4 of us are all awake. Isabelle is still sleeping thankfully. She was up a bit through the night with a sore throat. I think the air is what is bothering her. Very dry in the the hotel and dry on the plane, she drank water like crazy, but still.

Last night we had excellent room service, and not too expensive.
We all were soo tired, but soo hungry, and didnt want to verture too far or have anything too out of the ordinar, especially since our bellies were soo empty. So we had ordered from the Western resturant in the hotel. We had fried rice, that was amazing, french onion soup, apple pie, lasagne. Sounds odd to say that we are soo adventerous with food, lol, but after being awake off and on for 35 hours, no one was too hot! LOL
We are having a nice breakfast here in the hotel, as Lily missed the food since she feel alseep.

Lily has been hillarious! The stuff that she says is so funny. All morning she has been telling me that she pooped in a TOLIET!! really emphasizing toliet... and I just realized that she meant NOT A SQUATTY POTTY. She called it a squished potty, and she was NOT too impressed when daddy tried to make her pee over it. LOL

Outside our hotel window is very amazing. There is a large river, that a walkway all over the edge. There were people wimming in it at 5:30am (they dive off the side of a gorgeous bridge)and others doing Tai Chi .
It is definatly different than the last time we came. I keep saying to frank,where did all the people go, where are all the cars. Very very bizzre. coming into the airport was very odd too. Last time there were hourds of people, no lines, all pushing to get passports checked. Not this time. Nice lines, some empty, people in uniforms sweetly showing you to the empty lines.
It already has paid off for the girls to come during the parolympics. We saw the WHOLE team from Great Britian arrive, and it was amazing. There were also tons of reporters, I felt like Bradgelina!! lol So we took pics of them taking pics of us.

Lots of love
Krista
ps: Just checked Lily, now burning with a fever! But it doenst seem to be slowing her down right now. Shes been wide awake since 2:30am. Im sure that isnt helping.
