Touring and shopping in Guangzhou
We toured the historic Chen house and went to the Guangzhou arts and crafts. Micah was more impressed with the grocery across the street where he scored some sour skittles and potato chips. Mama got her precious "Zero Coca" (Coke Zero). Ah, the real thing!
And last night, another taste of home - Papa John's Pizza. Yum! Noah likes pizza too!
Today we went shopping for pearls, jade and toys with Ann from Red Thread China. If you are looking for a personal shopping assistant in Guangzhou, I can't say enough good things about Ann. She helped us to find just what we were looking for at a good price. Mama got a pearl solitaire necklace and Baba got a jade necklace. Micah got a cool place and Noah got a toy phone (so maybe he'll leave the hotel phone alone!) We got some great gifts to bring home, too.
Tonight we are going to the Cow and Bridge Thai restaurant. I've heard good things about that one.
