7 February -- Kunming

Today was our first family outing. Our facilitator Zhou took us to the Yunnan Minorities Village -- it's kind of the Kunming EPCOT. There are over 20 ethnic minorities in Yunnan Province, and this attraction has recreations of several different minorities' villages. We saw the Dao, Wa, Tibetan, and other villages. It's a pretty place about 20 kilometers south of Kunming. It's definitely a tourist trap, but it was a pretty day and Melissa enjoyed being outside in her stroller. She's definitely a traveler! She's always peering around seeing what's new. We also survived our first diaper change and feeding on the road!

Later in the day, Steve and our facilitator completed the paperwork for the US Consulate General. We also received Melissa's birth certiciate and certificate of abandonment. It's official -- she's all ours! We're waiting on her passport, and we'll then be all set to start heading home!
