Aj nis officially ours. Things were a little different here in Hohhot. Everything was done at the hotel, getting him yesterday and some paperwork in the lobby. Today, in a conference room, with the orphanage director, Inner Mongolia Orphanage head, 2 from notary office, and another important lady. The IM director was all business, and interviewed us thru the translator. This is the only interview we've had except fot Emmi's. He just asked the basic stuff that is on all the paperwork: reason for adopting, how long married, income, # of children, are we satisfied with the child.......Now we wait in the room for all signed and stamped paperwork to be brought to us.
Then we will go for a walk on a main street we can see from the hotel, and a main square, there is also a shopping area we are told. I'm sure we won't last long, with the temps in the teens.
Things are quite different here. Last night, walking back from supper, we saw a Cadillac, Lexus, several Audi's Lambraghini, Bentley, Mercedes MD, many very expensive cars, and a van like mine=) (I think it was a hotel shuttle).
THe resturaunt had a water fall, grand piano player, and violinist. At home, if we walked in and saw the atmosphere, we would turn and walk out....knowing we could not afford to eat there. We had dinner there for 130rmb, about $21!! We are glad to find cheap meals here, as we did not find them in Shenyang or Beijing, other than KFC--yuck.
Colds are better, thank you for your prayers.
