T minus 11 and counting

Now it is 4:33 am (not that I am paying attention), and I am W-I-D-E awake! Joe is too for that matter!
I can't figure out am I awake because:
1.) I am still adjusting to time change?
2.) I am back on my typical "gym" schedule, like at home?
3.) Flora's arriving in 11 hours and 25 minutes........naw that COULDN"T be it!!!!!

I will probably get dressed soon. Breakfast starts at 7:30. Then we are heading to the people's park, next to our hotel! The retired people practice their tai chi every morning. Next, we are heading to the "supermarket" that Joe hit yesterday. He says "Wal-Mart" is small compared to this multi level "super market" that has everything. We will kill and hour or so there, return to the hotel have lunch and start pacing.........
At 2:00, we meet up with Michelle our guide. We have to give her some paperwork. Then we leave for the Civil Affairs office at 2:30, where the babies are due to arrive at 3:00!
Next post.....Flora and her forever family!

Oh, I had a request for a photo of a squatty potty. This is not THE squatty potty, but A squatty potty!
