The girls have been awake since 2 am local time...so we hit the buffet breakfast and then the park first thing this morning. To say we are a spectacle with 3 kids under 5 (and two double strollers) in a country where most ppl only have one child is an understatement. We roll with it and say in 'ni hao' to everyone, allowing them to gawk and ask questions about the 3 kids (you really have 3? How old are they? Where was Emma born? What's her Chinese name? How old is the baby? Aren't the girls cold?)
Also, Alexis is somewhat of a celebrity due to her hair!! She was even given a gift by someone this morning in return for getting her picture taken by a young woman, lol.
She then found out how to take a 'selfie' with my iPhone :-)
On a side note - The smog is horrible in shanghai! Seriously, post apocolytic like. After seeing a bunch of masks on local businessmen this morning, I googled 'smog in Shanghai' and apparently yesterday registered as the worst smog day on record in shanghai.
After learning this, we will probably spend the afternoon at the hotel indoor pool, a yummy room service dinner and an early bed time. We then have an early flight tomorrow am to nanchang to meet lingao!
