Today we visited another Buddhist Temple. It was gorgeous. The kids loved the coy and turtle pond. There were hundreds of turtles. A few of the turtles had red Chinese characters painted on their back. During Chinese celebrations the Monks will go to the market and pick out a few turtles. They write a Chinese Blessing on their back and set them free. We climbed tons of stairs but never made it to the true top. It is so much hotter than home here. The temples were beautiful with lush gardens.
Today was the last tour we will be going on. Tomorrow is a museum. Barb will go to that. Museums are too much for 3 kids and 2 adults with no attention span. Barb will give us the Cliffs notes.
Tonight we have the group Red Couch picture and then a big birthday bash with about 20 families from our agency. Many babies have birthdays this month and several families missed their child's birthday by a week or two. I'll post the pictures tonight.
Thursday we turn in all our info to the American Consulate. Friday we pick up Bliss' exit Visa and depart China at 9PM!!!!!
