Sunday in Guangzhou

This morning we ate breakfast on the 45th floor in the revolving restaurant. It was the best breakfast in China so far. We'll be heading there for the rest of the week if we get up on time:) The kids thought it was so neat to sit at the table and watch the city go slowly by.

At 9:30 we met our group to go to Shamian Island to see local shops and statues. We bought the girls matching Chinese dresses. They look so cute!

We made it back to the hotel by 1:00 to get ready for our paperwork meeting and eat some kind of Chinese Ramen Noodles. At 3:00 Marsha went with half the parents for 1 1/2 hours worth of paperwork to get ready for the Chinese Consulate. The other half of the parents stayed with their children. Gary took Macella & Kirstie to swim and Maria to watch. They had a good time.

At 6:00 we went out with a couple of families to try a different Chinese Restaurant that was supposed to be more like we are used to in America. You will see the appetizing chicken head in the pictures below:) I'm not sure I recall the last time I was served a chicken head for dinner! Although the food was not wonderful, the company was. Afterward we all went to KFC for sundaes and french fries.

Tomorrow we head back to the Shamian Island so all 9 families can take their kids to the doctor appointments. We really are not sure what that entails, but I'm sure it will be an adventure!

Thanks again for following along. We are looking forward to getting Maria back to the U.S., but we have a few more paperwork hurdles to jump through 1st. We'll keep you posted!
