DAVID, ALYSSA, EMSLEY AND CHELSEA v ARRIVED!!
It took a while. They left China on Sunday night and finally made it here on Tuesday night. A day late and NO luggage!!
They flew from Shanghai to Frankfurt, Germany where they were to have a 1 1/2 hour layover and change planes.
From there it would have been a direct flight to Helsinki, Finland. However, they were having a snowstorm in Germany......not to mention Helsinki!
They had to be rebooked on 3 more flights (only to go nowhere) and it was the FOURTH flight that finally made it out! We were so happy to see them at the Helsinki Airport. BUT....it took another 2 hours once here. They had to wait in long lines to report their luggage LOST!! Somewhere between Shanghai and Germany we are sure. We just hope they get it before Christmas......all their presents and clothes and toiletries and, of course, the recharger for the Blackberry!!
David and Chelsea wanted their picture at the famous 'window' where all of our temple shots are taken from!!
Now.....let's just enjoy the next week!! :-)
