(Allie's "breakfast" on the plane. It was some sort of chicken and rice porridge.)
The hotel sent a van to pick us up and we had a 30 min drive to the hotel. What an experience!! There are basically no traffic laws so people just honk and keep going. We saw all kinds of new sights. The city is old but full of culture. I am looking forward to exploring tomorrow.
Our hotel is very nice. We have two bedrooms, two baths, a living room, and kitchen. Not at all what I expected for the price. You definitely get more for your money here!! Food will definitely be an issue for Allie and I. Even the "American foods" have a totally different taste. There is a shopping center in the hotel so we bought some bread and PB so we won't starve. This may be the diet I have been meaning to start for the past, I don't know, 15 years.
We didn't want to sleep this afternoon but we were all getting grumpy so we decided to take a short nap before finding some dinner. Five hours later, we made our way to the hotel restaurant, which was pretty reasonably priced. We didn't explore outdoors today but we are all heading to bed to get some sleep and hope to see some things tomorrow. Our biggest obstacle will be making it across the street alive!
Tomorrow is a free day and then we have our giving and receiving ceremony on Tuesday!! I want to say thanks to all of you who helped us get ready so quickly this past week and helped us get all of the basic things we will need for Anna. We really couldn't have done it without you and we love and appreciate you all.
