Summer Palace

Not much to say today: the admin part is completed, so we just need to wait for the papers to come back before we can take off back home. In the meantime, we’re visiting, and today was the Summer Palace for daddy, while mommy and the kids were resting in the room.

Beijing

We are now in Beijing with the rest of the group. 22 families! We arrived on Friday evening and settled into our room. Saturday we did some paperworks for immigration and we went to the Zoo. I think the animals think the zoo was in front of them… just crazy how the people can be.

Today was the Jade factory, the Great Wall, the Cloisonnés factory…a Sunday…I have to say I kind of miss our 2 previous weeks because even thought we could feel China is very populated I think this week here will overwhelm us. 5 years ago we came in November and it didn’t seemed to be that crowded.

We had a wonderful week in Xinjiang despite the very controlled environment. It is a beautiful province, full of mountains and desert areas. The people are beautiful too and the pilaf rice, lamb kebab and flat bread helped us too quickly catch the weight we lost last week 🙂 I hope we’ll be able to see more when we go back, one day…

Our little pirate is adopting us slowly, and we are all adjusting to a life as a family of 4. Little Mr E is very strong willing and testing us of course, but most of the time he is a very happy little boy full of energy and eager to learn. He gives us kisses already and can go to both Mama and Baba. We love him already to pieces and cannot wait to be home with him.

Sorry it is so short, we are pretty tired and at night our brains go blind…More when we are back home for sure.

Zen…

Quelqu’un a oublié de couper Internet ce matin à Urumqi 🙂 Nous allons tous très bien, et vous écrirons plus bientôt.

A long day

Yesterday, we visited a typical town where some minority people are living. We walked in a 1000 years old pedestrian street full of locally made crafts of all kind for sale. The way back to the hotel was long: instead of taking the same highway, we were told to use a shortcut across the mountain, and reduce our trip by 1 or 1:30 hours. In fact, we got lost, and went through 3 hours of mountain drive before going back on the highway, and were quite sick… We were not in a good shape last night, but this didn’t prevent us from tasting some more incredible hospitality from our guests!

A wonderful day

Today, we had great emotions, met with some amazing people, got answers to questions already asked and to more to come in the future, and saw more beautiful places… Let’s share some pictures with you.
