Next we went to the Guangzhou Zoo. Let's just say we aren't in Kansas anymore. Believe it or not, it's hotter and more humid here than Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi combined. We took in a beluga show and then took a little train around the entire zoo. It was a significant size with the city encompassing the zoo. Our final exhibit had white bunnies and chickens together in a pen. We were wondering why until we saw a snake the size of our 9 year-old son in the glass case! Oh my goodness!!! Esther did really well and slept a lot of the tour, the heat and all the excitement were just too much.
For lunch we took the kids to have a special treat at McDonalds. I have resisted all American restaurants over here until today, and I have to say it was amazing. I suppose the only catch was that they were fresh out of beef! It was pretty hilarious so we all had chicken nuggets.
In the evening we got to go on a Pearl River cruise. It was beautiful to take in the whole city at dusk. The Canton Tower was amazing and boasts having the tallest observation deck in the world. Tomorrow is our Consulate Appointment, please pray that there are no delays and we can bring a new American citizen home very soon!
