The Flamingo Has Landed

Back in the USA....quite the adventure has ended. I suppose a better way to phrase this is an eventful chapter has ended and a new one begun.

Got home from the Philippines on Tuesday morning. A wee bit tired but stayed a awake most of the day.

James made dinner. TACOS. WOO WOO. Brought me back to the Philippines when I asked for lettuce to stuff in my taco and he says, "oh I forgot to buy that at the store." Translation, "I know it's on the menu, but sorry it's not available."

I made up my own to Philangish word. (Philipino and English.) QUESAMADA. James couldn't remember what Reyde likes to eat. I thought I could remember. I said quesamada. A combo of quesadilla and ensaymada. WOOPS.

And probably the funniest thing happened when James was browning the hamburger for the taco meat. I was cleaning off the counter to make space for cooking. I put a bunch of bills and paperwork and keys and wallet and glasses and whatever else spilled out from my purse when I came home.

I am in the living room with Reyde and he asks me what I did with the taco seasoning.


Belly laugh. "Yeah right Wendy, you put it in your purse." Woops.

The Great Wall of China

Mom and I on the Great Wall of China. This part was steep. With all the tripping I've done in Manila I had a wee bit of anxiety going down this part of the Wall.

So may not have any more posts. I've got over 1000 photos to put into albums so we can all go on my trip over and over and over again. And I'll probably be paying for extra luggage. Didn't think about how heavy photos would be. Oh Well.

Nanny K in China

Hello all. I know been too long but I have so much to do before I leave that I haven't spent time with my blog. After Baguio, Loree, Keyo and I went to Puerto Galera and then last weekend, (March 10th) I stayed home for some much needed sleep.

Mom arrived on Monday night and we headed to Beijing on Thursday. OMG it was SOOO COOOOOLDDDD. What am I gonna do in Seattle? It was a balmy 45 degrees Fahrenheit. I guess I am acclimated to 90 degrees in Manila.

So here are a couple quick photos from China. Got a lot to wrap up and pack during this next 7 days. Then back to Seattle. Can't wait to see my boys.

Mom with her two best Chinese friends.
Noodles anyone?
I can take just as big of a bite as my Mom.
In the Forbidden City. The architecture is just overwhelming.
See I was SOOO COOOLLLLLDDD. This photo was taken at the Summer Palace. Man made lake to enjoy in the summer. Reminded me of Seattle and got a bit homesick. Ready to come home to my family, friends, dogs, and stuff.

I will so miss the people in the office at AMMEX I-Support. I keep telling them that I'll just be at a different extension. But I know it's not going to be the same. For me or them.
