Made it to Guangzhou!

I made it to Guangzhou last night, but my luggage didn't!  Thankfully, it has now arrived in Guangzhou and should be delivered later this afternoon.  Today is a free day, so I wandered around Shamian Island, took some pictures, and had an iced vanilla latte at Starbucks (after they promised that the ice was clean). 

Tomorrow is the big day.  I should be united with Gianna in the afternoon around 2:30 or 3:00.  Thank you, Jesus!!

View from my first room.  It smelled rather musty, so I asked for a different room, which, as it turns out is still musty, but not as bad.  It is just so humid here!
It was a great day for wedding couples to have photographs taken.
Rock, paper, scissors?

Starbucks . . .  yum!!
