Yesterday, we picked up the pictures that the orphanage had taken on the disposable cameras we had sent in a care package. We sent 2 but they only used 1. Makes sense because there really wasn't that much time, but I had been hoping for more.
I got at least one smile. Maddie, is that Ella in any of the pictures? I couldn't tell but I thought you'd know :)
Today is our last full day in Guangxi and we are off to the countryside to see pigs, water buffalo and farm life. I honestly never thought I'd be sad to leave but I am. Life here in a 5-star (very loosely interpreted) hotel, never having to cook, and my own personal guide aside, it's hard to think that this will be the last Lia sees of her birthplace for many, many years. I hope I can recount to her about the people and places of this land in years to come.
