Consulate Appointment

The most important part of today cannot be seen in our photos, because one cannot take photographs at the American Consulate.  We had early morning appointments there today.  The families took an oath of honesty re: the citizenship materials provided on behalf of their children. Then each of us had our materials reviewed and signed paperwork. Sister was a very good waiter during that process--sat and drew until it was our turn and then waited quietly with me during our appointment. 

Now we are waiting for the visa and the necessary immigration paperwork to be completed and delivered tomorrow. 

After this big step, sister and I napped/worked, then went to Liu hua hu park--beautiful oasis in the middle of the city. 

Then our group took a boat cruise on the Pearl River.  Perfect weather, beautiful lights everywhere...a little tiring for sister.  We ordered and ate Papa John's pizza.  You can see the stadium from the Asian Games, all lit up.  I wish all of my family could have taken that cruise.

Though these photos insist on being out of order--the park was in the afternoon and the cruise in the evening.
