We’re in the Hong Kong airport (Cathay Pacific Cabin business class lounge–all those HIPPY trips to Little Rock and visits to my mom in Chicago paid off in so many miles…). This is transition between the AJC Asia mission and Africa dream trip. Feel very global–and remarkably more accepting of our global family life. Have whole new answer to others’ angst about Amy and Jonathan living abroad. Between seeing them and their friends AND meeting so many wonderful people like them throughout Asia, I have come to a different view of expat mom role. Hmm–time to trade Telegraph Landing for Beijing condo?

Enjoy the smattering of photos.  The safari ones will be a tad different–and the wardrobe will change, for sure. Plan is to ship Asia bags from hotel in Johannesburg (first Africa stop) to the one in Capetown (last Africa stop).

From a small bit of flour comes thin noodles that were pan-fried and incredible!

Another new Amy venture! I had a book talk there Saturday. Photos to follow (upload tech problems!).
