Amazing Race Day


Hi all!  We’re here at the Zhengzhou Airport waiting for our 6:00 flight to Guangzhou…today is ‘Amazing Race’ day – lots of running around, but it’s all good!

Started the day in Luoyang and on drive to airport, took in the Shaolin Temple and padoga forest there – hit Wikipedia for more info…

Shaolin is the home and center of Shaolin Kung Fu and we saw the most incredible display of punked out Kung Fu that you can imagine.  Got it all on video – Dad and Nathan, Pat and Pete — three words…needle through glass.  Have to see to believe.

On the way out, we met Tony Soprano’s Chinese counterpart who talked us into a van ride high into the hills for what Zhou called a ‘countryside Chinese meal’ that the Shaolin monks would eat.  It completely ROCKED!  We got our own room to eat in and we were treated like the kings and queens of the peasant village.  The Chinese are VERY gracious, and went as far as giving Lydia a pair of warm overpants. The clothes police were in full force, so we accepted.

Abby and Alexa – Mom got pics of the chicken we ate running in the courtyard 10 minutes before it arrived on our table.

After the temple and lunch, we settled in for the two hour ride to the airport – wild girl fell asleep on my lap and we all crashed for about an hour.

Gotta go now, though…much love and will check in from Guangzhou!

    the hang of it!
