Estan nerviosos?!?!? que increible, ya falta muy poquito. Su itinerario esta increible, lo que no entendi es si se van a hospedar en el Temple of Heaven o solo lo visitan, jaja, por favor toman muchas fotos. Ademas el broche de oro es recoger a Toñito y que se conozcan, como sera la reaccion de Vivi?? Les deseo la mejor de la suerte en su viaje
