We went to the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Tianamen Square, a pearl market, and the Acrobat Show. It's really nice to NOT be in charge and just sit back and relax. The traffic is just as I remembered... terrifying! Our food has been delicious. Yoshi took us to a resteraunt he thought we would all enjoy and he was right. I saw the braised duck tounge and beef tripe, but there were also many other less adventerous choices. We settled for a chicken/peanut dish with rice.
Today we go to the Great Wall and then straight to the airport. I can't believe we will be in Lydia's province today! There is a chance we will get her tonight, but we won't know until we get there. We saw some of the most beautiful children yesterday, and I especially got a kick out of the split pants!
Had my first run in with a squat pot, surprisingly it was not so bad. Just have to remember to get the TP BEFORE you close the door. (the TP is at the front entrance on one big communal roll)
I miss the boys, everytime we turn around we are talking about them. Thank you for your prayers, we need them.
If all goes well there should be some photos!
