We had wondered into town for something (lunch? can't remember) Our guide received a phone call and said, "They are waiting in the lobby for us!" So we headed back to the hotel. Walking down those loud, dusty streets was a blur because I was excited to meet this kid! No time for nerves or second-guessing, the time was upon us.
We walked into the lobby of the hotel and we saw the representatives, but I didn't see him. Then he stood up. He was so small! I recognized the shirt he was wearing from some of the photos we had received in an update. He was smiling shyly and then... threw up.
They rushed him to the bathroom and my heart broke. I asked our guide if it's because he was so nervous, but he said no, he just got carsick. I was hoping that's all it was! I felt terrible for him. We went up to our room to sign some papers, then everyone left. It was just the 4 of us now, with no guide. He was watching Chanz with his iPad, so I gave him the iPhone to see what he would do.

More noodles, of course. He ate it all. He was quiet but polite. Unfortunately, he truly did get car sick very easy. We had taxi ride after bus ride after taxi ride after bus ride.. poor kid was miserable. Those noodles he ate? We saw them again. :p
