Guangzhou, China: we are loving it!

Today, I finally got Lydia to laugh at breakfast time so we thought this shirt was appropriate!

As you can see..she was pretty hungry

Teaching the Chinese people what "you rock" means..we had so much fun!

The White Swan Hotel is located on the Shamian is just gorgeous here. This is part of the park on the Shamian Island.

Today we went shopping in the district. It was pretty fun. Lydia is just doing great. We are falling in love with her more and more each day. She seems to be doing pretty well with Baba too. She still doesn't like to try new foods, but I am not going to stress out about that. We haven't even had her for a week yet!

We only have two more days here. It is a bittersweet thing. We really like Guangzhou....I mean we really like it! But...we are totally ready to get back home.
Thanks to all of you who helped us get here. We are forever grateful.
Tomorrow we are going on a city tour and we are also going to a Buddist Temple...this should be interesting........
Until then....
