This is pretty much what we have been doing today!

The past couple of days have been pretty uneventful. It is hard because we want to take the opportunity to see Vietnam while we are here but it is so hot and we are still learning what Anna needs. We have seen what we want here in Hanoi pretty much. Tomorrow is our VISA interview and then we leave on Thursday.
We had been wanting to go to the "Hanoi Hilton" while we are here so Dean was reading about it and we discovered that the original prison was torn down in 1993 and a shopping center and hotel had been built instead. Guess what hotel we are staying in! The little building outside our window that we have been wondering why people are walking around is what is left of the prison so we went out and saw it today. It was interesting. That's all I'll say for now. We weren't allowed to take pictures of the inside so this is the outside.

Waiting is not always fun....but spending time together just the four of you, I am sure is wonderful! We can't wait to see you guys and look forward to meeting that beautiful daughter of yours! Declan is doing pretty good at saying Anna now.(when he wants too!) Anna and Nana are pretty interchangable to him!
See you in a few days!!
