Nikki reading the letters that Shelby and Katie sent. She was so happy that they took the time to write her.
Event # 2: (completely unrelated to the above!)
Can you guess by the picture below?
In the Holiday Inn on our last morning in China, we saw the unwelcomed visitor that we suspected had been visiting our kitchen area in the wee hours of the morning. The day before we left, I had accidentally left a bag of bread open on the counter. I noticed that morning that chunks were gone; not small bits say from a roach. The bread was tossed, and we knew it was likely a mouse. We only had 1 day and night left so we just wrapped and sealed everything well and moved most food items out of the kitchen. The next morning, the day of departure, we were up much earlier than normal. I went in the kitchen area and noticed the chunk missing from the pear, and then I quickly left. David soon went in the kitchen area to fix our instant coffee. He said "I heard something!" I was busy packing and didn't pay much attention. Then a few minutes later, he yelled "It's a rat!" David actually saw it crawl over the fridge and above the vent of the oven. He said it was much bigger than the country mice we see our dogs and cats bring home from our woods. We were so glad to be checking out that morning. We did report it to the hotel staff on our way out. By the way, we were on the 13th floor!
