As you can see from these pictures, Mimi looks pretty chipper after the long flight, and she was as excited as the girls to join up with us.
The girls immediately had to tell Mimi EVERYTHING that has happened to them in the last 2 months, and Zoe has been seriously instructing her on all things Chinese: "Mimi, you can't sit 'like this' (with foot on knee) because it's rude to show the bottom of your foot to people, but it isn't rude to stare, so you can do that."
We took Mimi to lunch at Lin Duck House, where she had a well-deserved beer -- I know, she doesn't even like beer! But it's the one guaranteed cold drink in China! After lunch, we let Mimi sleep for an hour, and then we've been keeping her awake with a walk to the park and making her read bedtime stories to the girls. She says she feel surprisingly good after the long flights. But we'll let her go to bed soon, and hopefully getting on China time quickly will make the jetlag pass quickly.
