Test post from Guangzhou

It seems like we might be able to access the blog...but this is a test post to see! If it works, I'll post pictures tomorrow!

After a 2 hour train ride we are in Guangzhou. The train was okay, dealing with the luggage was a bit difficult, but we made it. Boy, was I glad the agency guide was there to help us out of the train station! That was a bit of a maze and mass of people. The drive was about 30 minutes and not one I would have wanted to have hailed my first Guangzhou cab for! Our guide said that our room was upgraded by the hotel staff to the best suite in the hotel! It is large and roomy with 2 bathrooms, 2 rooms, 2 couches...and a slightly discernable musty/old smoke smell. Add poopy diapers to the mix...tomorrow...and we might want to wear some perfume! Not that bad, really. We'll have to take some pictures of the room to post to show you the over the top decor.

Keep praying for us and Lily! Our guide said she spoke with the orphanage today and she is doing well and is "active." Hmm...what could that mean? The middle of the afternoon is when we feel a little out of it, so hopefully that will be over with tomorrow. Not sure if we are going to order in or try a restaurant. We'll see!

Post more later, hopefully!

In Him,
