The weather always appears to be overcast with gray skies as a constant forecast. But honestly, it's probably the pollution. It makes Southern Cal's smog look like Alaska.
And as for the hustle and bustle of daily life, there are NO pedestrian nor legitimate traffic rules. There are mopeds going against traffic, weaving and turning between lanes. There is about 5 inches between each car, among the lanes. And EVERYONE around us smokes.
One big decision we have to make is whether we should visit Hope's orphanage. Most directors do not allow it but this particular one will allow us. Chance of a life time. There will be a substantial additional fee. Why are we not surprised! The dilemma is that my mom is still sick. She's stopped vomiting but still very weak and Hope is still very congested. It's a 4 hour ride to the orphange and 4 hours back, that's a total of 8 hours. Please talk to our Dad for us to help us make the right decision.
