Many friends have requested to be Lori McCary's travel companion to China since Doug was unable to make the journey with her. Some bribery was even reported by certain friends in order to be considered as top choice for traveling mate. But after considering the pros and cons of each applicant (such as maturity level, cultural sensitivities, fearlessness of flying, the ability to display a reasonable level of maturity and such), it was decided that me and my daughter, Isabella would be first choice.
This sadly created much discontent among several of the applicants not chosen for this special privilege. But unfortunately, only one adult could join Lori on the journey and I was the obvious choice after much deliberate consideration.
Yet, one particular friend refused to take no for an answer and somehow, beyond comprehension she continually popped up in the most unexpected ways and unexpected of places. At first, we found this quite humorous. But honestly, became somewhat alarmed and irritated by her relentlessly showing up at very inconvenient times. As the trips photographer, I decided that I should begin to document these strange appearances through photos. Following is all the evidence we need to prove her presence in the great land of China.
To preserve her dignity we will not disclose her identity, but simply refer to her here as Flat Sonia.
Flat Sonia is flat out FUNNY!
