I'm looking forward to exploring (a.k.a. shopping) around Guangzhou tomorrow. It already seems like a different kind of China than the China of Guangxi, but we'll see. Another benefit to being here is that we get to meet up with all the other families from our group who met their children in their various provinces earlier this week. For us, it is the first time we have met any of them, since we were not in Beijing at the beginning of the trip.
We were pretty worn out after another day of traveling so we decided to lay low and do room service tonight. Lia had what she's had for dinner (and breakfast, and lunch) every night...congee. It's like rice mush with some meat thrown in it. Her congee of choice is chicken. It's about all she'll eat, save for some fruit, and the ever popular Gerber puffs. And her pipes have, how shall we say, suffered from the lack of fiber.
So before we left Guangxi, Mary, our ever faithful guide, left us with one last piece of Chinese culture. I don't know what you call it, but the picture on the front of the box says it all: the happy baby with the mighty colon. One dose of that and everything was moving right along in just a few hours. Ancient Chinese secret.
Our bathing beauty is now ready for bed and so are we!
