Hey, that's quite a picture of Tian An Men Square, huh? Can you see it? No?
Hmmmm. Maybe that's because our camera is having fits. We took about 150 pics around Tian An Men Square and the Forbidden City today. On the way to the Great Wall, our camera started flashing some code that made us believe it just needed to be charged. We bought a disposable camera at the Great Wall and snapped several pictures there. When we returned to the hotel, we discovered that the code the camera was flashing means that the card is not formatted. Huh? It's been working fine and then it just decided it didn't recognize the card.
So, I really hope the pics are still on the card and can be retrieved. Right now we have no way of knowing for sure.
The upside, if there is one, is that at least we aren't talking about "Josie Day' pictures. I would be...I don't even know how to describe how I'd feel if we lost pictures from the moment we become a family. This, of course, does make me nervous that it could happen again on Josie Day, but we'll figure something out. We do have the other, smaller camera, but it was having problems focusing at the airport last night. Then again, so was I. A put new batteries in that camera and it seems to be working just fine.
Anyhoo, our tours today were wonderful. They are refurbishing parts of the Forbidden City in preparation for the Olympics next year, so the big hall in the middle of the grounds that's always used in the movies was covered by netting. Oh well.
We climbed pretty far up the Great Wall. Far enough to get a certificate saying we climbed the Great Wall. That was cool.
Hopefully we'll get the camera situation straightened out and I won't have to start cussing. I'm really praying that God will take an interest in this little technology glitch and decide on some divine intervention.
I'm exhausted, and must get in bed. We get up at 5am to fly to Guangzhou. Luckily, most of the day is free and I can get a nap if I need to.
Phoebe: Hope you're having fun. We miss you and love you. It was nice to talk to you for a little bit this morning. Hugs and Kisses.
