We went on a big walking trip around all the shopping malls near us. It was a little bright outside so Millie wanted to wear her sunglasses. After lunch and a nap, we went to a old school/temple. Once we were there, we realized it was a place we toured on our first visit to Guangzhou five and a half years ago. It was fun to just leisurely walk around and take in the sights. I got some additional video when Millie attracted a crowd to her as she was looking at some statues. It's pretty funny when she starts conversing with the locals in Chinese and we just sit back and watch. lots of people comment about her beautiful eyes and then I can tell they are asking where she is from. The answer Urumqi in Xinjiang province usually draws a comment about how far away that place is.

For dinner we went to a Mexican food place (Tekilas) that we found earlier in the day. It's always a good sign to see Mexican cook in the back and we were able to talk to the owner who is from Guadalajara. The food was really authentic and was better than the Mexican food we've had so far in Virginia. Tomorrow we're up early for our Consulate appointment and then plan to go to dinner with a family from Georgia we met in our hotel. Each day gets better and better - though bath time is marginally better. Oh well, baby steps.
