On our way to Shanghai

Walter and his turkey sandwich in LAX

Well, we're on our way. The photo to the right is Walter digging into a turkey sandwich (probably his last for a few weeks!) at the international terminal in LAX.  Our flight doesn't actually depart the international terminal, but this is where the big duty free store is. Jie dropped her clear quartz-sized plastic bag going through security in Austin and broke a glass container so we had to bus over here to buy a replacement. Also bought a 1L bottle of our preferred alcoholic beverage as well. The replacement bottle of beauty product was $1 more than the alcohol... 

Not much more to report than that. Everything else has been uneventful. Well, except for the massive exodus of X-Games fans that hit the airport at the same time we did this morning. So many commemorative skateboards.
