My dad make it to China safely--he's just exhausted. I downloaded Skype last night and called my mom, who filled me in on my dad. I guess his apartment looks just like the pictures online and he's been working US hours still. Oh, and his bed is rock hard so he's been sleeping on the couch. We might end up sending him an air mattress. I'm glad that he's safe and can't wait to hear from him on Skype.
