CJ and Trotter checking in! We just woke up or should I say Ms. Parker woke us up. We needed to be down at the restaurant for breakfast by 7:15am, which came as a shocker to us because we had anticipated being down by 7:45am. We always make it happen so we followed as instructed as good ambassadors should. Walking down to the restaurant, eagerly awaiting our first Chinese breakfast, we were more excited than ever. We didn’t expect the food to be so similar to an American breakfast: bacon, eggs, milk and so on. The food was delicious!
