Yay! we've finally heard from Spencer! He's arrived in China, so far he's enjoying the experience. What a relief to get an email from him, even though we've seen pictures posted of kids from the various high schools that went. It was good to finally hear from him. I got a chuckle out of his email I can feel his awe and excitement just like when he was a little boy and would get so excited seeing large caterpillar tractors and heavy equipment LOL
Sorry it took so long. They don't have computers to use. The business center is just for mail and money, etc., but the plane ride was great. We had seafood and shrimp plus pork and noodles. it was quiet and dark most the time and I never once got sick. When we took off it was sooo cool, I felt like I was in the space shuttle. Oh and the city I'm staying in is well... think forbidden city but with 8 separate hotels, sports centers with a very large golf course and a waterpark. and it's all walled in. one of the hotels is actually the Staff Center and it's like a skyscraper. There are soo many gardens and it's not even in acres but in square kilometers/miles that's how big it is. I'm doing great and I'm picking up a little Chinese Mandarin and I'm getting to be a pro with chop sticks.
Love you all, and I'll see you soon. ttys.
Your thriving son
