Fun with my host family

Sent from my iPhoneToday is a relaxing Saturday morning. I spent it playing Uno with my host family - mom Randy, daughter Tracey, and friends Susie and Coco. We had special language rules. They could speak only English; I could speak only Mandarin. Needless to say, I got lots of corrections on my tones but I learned some new vocabulary and we had a lot of fun. Dad Hong played a few hands but the started doing something else.

2013 wrap-up

On the last Saturday in September the team gathered at Luke's house to talk about the trip.  We discussed what worked well in Doumen.  What might be improved.  And we all shared stories of the trip and our experiences with our Chinese friends.

Home again in Indiana

Jeff got home today after a week in Singapore. The entire team is home now. PTL for smooth safe travel - though my plane did get struck by lightning as we were leaving Seoul. That causes a flash of excitement!

Heading Home

Everyone makes last minute contacts with family and friends via the free Internet service provided at the Hong Kong airport.  We continue to laugh and reflect on our wonderful experiences on this trip.  We all also tried to get a good walk in before our long period of needing to stay seated for 14 hours!  Thanks for all your thoughts for us during this whole amazing journey.  (Audrey)

Hong Kong Airport!

Bronwen and Melissa found some great displays!  Bronwen practices her flight attendant pose, and Melissa, our very own Jamaican superstar, poses with another famous Jamaican - Usain Bolt! 

Sunday Morning!

We are at the airport ready to head out in about an hour!  

Saturday Night

We spent our last night together as a team sharing laughs over dinner. Afterwards we walked through the night market near Booth Lodge where we are staying.  Bronwen and Melissa made sure to show Norm the Forester all the sights on Nathan Road in Kowloon. Go HU!

Saturday in Hong Kong

After crossing Victoria Harbor, we took a bus to the southern part of Hong Kong Island to Stanley Market where we had some lunch and did a little shopping for loved ones at home.  We enjoyed seeing this special dinner guest at the table next to us at the outdoor restaurant!  Woof, woof! (Audrey)

Saturday in Hong Kong

The team arrived safely at Booth Lodge late Friday evening.  Saturday morning we met for a time of fellowship and sharing our reflections about our trip. After meeting together, we crossed Victoria Harbor on the Star Ferry.  (Audrey)
