Today was a free day for us. We got up around 5:30, waited for PC to wake up, and enjoyed a delicious breakfast again. Always come back to FaceTime everyone then today we took a walk to a nearby park. It is amazing that right outside our 5 star hotel~
|The View from our 18 story hotel window.|
|Amazing that we could actually see mountains surrounding the city.|
we hit the jackpot for 'Real' day to day life in China.
We knew there was a park a couple of blocks behind our hotel but the to and from was the most fascinating.
Here are a few shots in the park~
|We ran into the two families that adopted boys from PC's orphanage. We stopped to talk and drew a crowd. So sweet how the Chinese people try to ask us questions or try their English out on us. :)|
We were starting to get a little too cold... 17 degrees today... we headed back toward the hotel and enjoyed experiencing some of 'Real' China~
I know Scott and I say this every time we come to China but it has to be said again... a smile and even a head nod are the universal language in any place. China is no different. We met lots of people that didn't return the gesture but there were some that did. We LOVED it and reminds us how much we adore the people of China.
We had more than a few Chinese women stop and talk to PC/ask us questions. All we could do is say Mama/Baba over and over and smile. They smiled right back and we knew they thought PC was cute. We certainly do think so!
We made it back to the hotel for a light lunch in the room and rest time. PC crashed from his big morning and I had time to get these new photos up.
Things continue to go well with our little man. He is very friendly and happy. Probably a little too much but as most know, our China time is not the real deal... this is just the honeymoon of our forever. It will 'Real' up when we are home but for now we are loving on him with all our heart and making him know we are a family no matter what!
Thanks for the comments... they mean SO much!!!
