30 Minutes in the Life: January 2017

We're in China now! It's been a big adjustment, but everything is coming together pretty smoothly. One of the great things about Nathan's job is that he gets US and Chinese holidays off so we get days off where everyone else in China has to work, which adds up to perfect travel times. We spent our first weekend away in Suzhou, which is right outside of Shanghai. It's a beautiful Canal town, very much feeling like the postcard image of China. We were all geared up to explore when Scarlett threw up ALL over. Fun fact, airbnbs in China don't provide towels, which made for a very challenging clean up. Fortunately, our sweet girl felt much better the next morning and we explored YuYun Pagoda, or the leaning Pagoda of China. Having been to both famous leaning towers, This Pagoda definitely takes the cake. It's surrounded by beautiful gardens, canals and old buildings. We loved our bit of time we spent here and are happy it's so close to where we live.
