Well, one of our bags may be in the USSR (Beatles song reference!), but the rest of us are safe and sound back in the U.S.A. We had a great journey back, the only bobbles the lost bag (getting 2 out of 3 ain't bad, I suppose) and three gate-changes and a late departure from LAX. The trip was really smoother than I could have expected, and the girls slept 8 out of the 12 hours on the Guangzhou to LAX flight.
I'll write more later; we're pretty wiped out right now! Hopefully we'll be over jetlag soon.
