I'm blogging! I'm a blogger! I blog now!

Here we go. It's official, we leave Saturday Nov. 3rd at 1:20 a.m., from SFO to Taipei, Taiwan, then on to Hanoi. We'll arrive in Hanoi at about Noon on Sunday, the 4th. It's going to be a loooooong ride. We plan to mix a cocktail of Ambien and red wine when we board and see how long we can knock ourselves out for.



Really, other than the fact that we have secured a flight and hotel and everything, there is no "news" yet... just getting ready to go. We've learned a lot about Hanoi and Vietnam in the past few days -- apparently you can buy 'pho' (noodle soup) from street vendors for about 20 cents. The prison grade meat contained therein will bring back fond memories of the lodge. Also, there are apparently numerous street vendors that sell snake blood cocktails. (note: thats not a just a clever drink name...its really made from snake blood). Evidently drinking snake blood 'cures' pretty much anything. We appreciate their culture and everything, but we'll probably stick with tylenol and whatnot.



The (still nameless) baby's room is taking shape...we both are fascinated with our printed out pdf images of her, but eagerly await meeting the 3-D version. Here's one of the photos that we have for the time being. More updates when we have more information....

Hey, Toni's friend Barb here, in Milwaukee! I've been following your blog & loving it all the way. Now that you're home with Lola, maybe I'll be the first to wish you a big ol' mazel tov! You have a beautiful daughter.
