5 hours down
...and MinMin has finally stopped crying. Actually, the hotel called and asked what the problem is, so someone had complained to the desk about the crying. I called and asked our guide to talk to her. Connie talked to MinMin on the phone, then came over and talked to her again. She has finally stopped crying, at least for now. When Connie asked her if she would like anything, she asked for water, but did not drink any when I gave it to her.
We know that she just needs time, and we are not worried at all about the crying, but it sure is hard when we can't just talk to her and make her understand anything. I hope that we can get her to bed and she'll sleep through the night, and feel better when she wakes up.
Richard went out and ordered a pizza from Papa John's. Not what we had wanted for dinner, but we couldn't leave the room yet, so that was the easiest. We missed breakfast because we slept in too late, then missed lunch because Richard was in line for 2 hours at the bank to change dollars into yuan.
