On our way back to China, away from the sunny, warm & beautiful Thailand, sigh, we had an 8 hour lay over in Zhengzhou. We were pretty excited about such a long layover because it meant the opportunity to explore another city before ending our vacation. I looked up Zhengzhou online and found zero point zero things to do in Zhengzhou so we decided to do what we do best, find a Starbucks.
Zachary was so excited to be arriving in Zhengzhou & back in China that he could barely keep his eyes open. Bless his heart. He sleeps so easily and peacefully while flying. This is my view for all our flights.
Window on one side, Zachary sleeping on the other. Zachary sleeps like a baby, meanwhile, I'm on the other side, cutting sores into my thumbs and pointer finger from picking my split ends, the.entire.flight. And writing 1 through 60 for every hour we are flying, so that I can cross out each minute as it passes, like some crazy person.
Upon on arrival in the freezing cold Zhengzhou, Bangkok sun no more, we headed outside the airport to find a taxi. It was 7 am, since our flight left Bangkok at 2 am, so it was the perfect time to head to Starbucks. We hopped into a taxi and told him to take us to the nearest Starbucks. A Starbucks which turned out to be apart of a bigger building, with no walls, and at 7:30 in the morning was freezing cold. For 5 to 6 hours we froze in Starbucks, spent time with Jesus, tried to sleep, drank a gajillion hot drinks and got a tiny view of Zhengzhou.
