On Sunday afternoon Aimee and I arrived in XuChang- excited to get to the orphanage the next day. We were a little tired but were afraid if we took a rest, we would mess up our sleep schedule. So we went for a walk.
And what a walk it was. First there were just many many shops. And lots of people. We noticed there were many electronic shops and phone stores. We took a right and saw many things for sale by street vendors next to a beautiful large park.
Families were flying kites and children driving little cars and riding rides. Colorful kites were for sale and two sisters rode unicycles. One little girl came up to Aimee and shyly offered her a postcard and said proudly "I know English". She giggled and ran back to her mom.
As we walked back to the hotel, we took back streets and saw interesting entryways to homes and a few signs for businesses that made us smile- most notable "Crabby Patties" and "Good sister-in law food".
We passed a primary school. Would love to go back and see the kids but won't have time. It was good to see a little more of XuChang and we may head out for a walk again some evening.
It was a balmy 65 when we went for a walk yesterday. Monday calls for a high of 42 with strong winds. We cannot wait to see the babies! Look for pictures of gorgeous babies later tonight!!
