We spoke with one travel agent last night to see what we could come up with.
His idea is we fly from Seattle to Shanghai which is a train ride away from Taizi's city. The lowest fare leaves on Oct 31...so that is days earlier than we need to be there. We have already found very affordable hotels in Shanghai if we want to hang out there for a day or so.
If CA is Nov 20 then we would leave Oct 31 and return Nov 22. Yes Thanksgiving day.
Flying out of Pasco gave us a rediculous 6+ hour layover in Seattle and added quite a bit to the cost.
It would be awesome to have the CA today but we don't anticipate it til Monday.
