Ha Long Bay

These are some pictures from our overnight to Ha Long Bay. We had a private car and there was only one other person on the boat tour with us besides the staff and our wonderful guide "Peter". We had so much fun. It is the most beautiful place we've ever been. Heaven on earth. We had 3 huge meals on board the boat. They just kept bringing plates of different fresh seafood from the bay. And Jill was the most popular one on the boat. Everyone wanted to hold her and play with her so we actually got to eat our meals at the same time! We slept on the boat at the spot in the picture with pink sky/ sunset. It was very peaceful. Even with the other boats Karaoke. That was pretty funny.

We will get our Visa on Monday at 4PM so we will be leaving on Tuesday. That puts us home on Wednesday at 1:10 PM. We're flying American Airlines from San Francisco. So anyone is welcome to come to the airport to see Jilly come home. We can't wait to be home. We won't be going anywhere for a while.
Jen, Dan, and Jill

Thanks George

Well, Daniel, Jill and I will not be coming home until the 14th of Sept. Things are going very slow on the American side. Everything is fine, it's just taking us a long time to get our appointments done. We've been done with Vietnam for a while now, we were waiting on our interview with Immigration, which we had today. We then have to have an appointment in Hanoi to get the final Visa for Jill. Which will not be until tomorrow at the soonest. Probably we will have that Monday and then wait for the Visa. We couldn't change our flight to any day but Thursday. So there it is. We'll be back in the US on Thursday night, spend the night in SanFran and come in on Friday at 1:00 or so.
Tracy is leaving as scheduled....we think.....we are waiting to hear from the airline.
I'll post more when I know more.

Oh, and St. Luke's guys.....please tell Becca I'm thinking of her and Lilly! Can't wait to see her.

We're still here. I know you haven't heard from us in a while. Daniel and I have colds. Tracy is over it all. We found out today that we probably won't be leaving when planned. Maybe a day or two later. Things got backed up here because of the holiday.
Jill is happy though, laughing and playing.
We'll keep you posted on our expected departure.
