Much of the rest of the morning was busy with sorting and packing for the journey home. We leave for the airport at 4:30 a.m., with our first flight leaving for Shanghai before 8 a.m. Our first leg is 2.5 hours, and after another several hours of waiting, we start our final flight home -- a twelve hour stretch.

Tomorrow, Milo is coming home.
