Hainan 2006

In this post, I shall compile the links of the posts related to the trip I have made to Hainan from 9 - 13 Nov 2006.

I dedicate this post to Eastcoastlife's parents-in-law who are Hainanese. May the photos on a few of these posts bring them to see the various sights of Hainan. They may physically be miles away from Hainan, but I hope these posts will bring some parts of Hainan closer to them.

Thanks PY for your postcards and for placing the posts on Hainan Island into one post.

My Mom-in-law was all teary when she saw the postcards of Hainan Island. My Dad-in-law who's a little senile, keeps pestering hubby to bring him back to Hainan.

I can understand their wish to see Hainan Island before they pass away. It is very sad to not be able to go back home to see the things and people you leave behind.

Thanks again for the photos. They at least ease some of my in-laws' longing to see Hainan Island again.

That was nice PY. Whatcha did for eastcoastlife's folks.

Good set of links for when I go back to look it all over. :)
