We have several days here in Guangzhou where nothing is planned. Today was one of them.
I would have loved to go to church here, but we aren’t quite brave enough to voyage across the city without a guide or being able to speak the language! And then, technically, Kai is a Chinese citizen and we can’t take him to church here.
This morning Jason turned on a show Kai likes, but in English. He responded with, “English!” We loved that he made the connection. So we listened to shows he likes in English.
We spent several hours exploring the Mountain Park. My goodness – it was beautiful! I love these parks – they are so amazing. I enjoy watching the older people – they love these parks. As the day wore on, there were children with grandparents. And then as the day progressed, families. Exactly like in Hefei. I wonder if the younger, more modern generation will revere the parks as much as the older generation does as they age.
(translations can be so funny!)
We came across some kind of presentation – music and dancing. Loved the instruments – wished Lizzy was here to see and hear them!
Look at the size of those Koi! If there is a park, there are ladies dancing…
This is cool. People take what looks like huge paintbrushes and write on the ground. Are they wishes? Love letters? Who knows, but I thought they were cool! Of course, the water dries, but so cool!
