Hurry Up and Wait
10.09.2010 26 °C
Now that we have the kids, signed all the Chinese papers and delivered our gifts we are in essentially a waiting mode.
Our group went shopping at a local mall, the Lotus Center. It was jam packed with products and foods of all types at very affordable prices. We shipped for Levi.
We toured the Shaolin Temple on Wednesday. This is the traditional home of Shaolin Kungfu and there are still a number of Kungfu schools in the area. It is also the home of Zen Buddhism. The temple has been destroyed and rebuilt several times. There are about 300 monks at the temple. This latest version was built in the 1980’s and is a popular attraction. While there we enjoyed a typical Chinese lunch and then went to watch a Kungfu show. What the young demonstrated was the outstanding discipline and control. There was no Kungfu fighting.
Thursday was a free day and we visited a local park in the morning and went shopping at Walmart. As you will see in the pictures, it was not your typical US store. This store was in a multi-story building and was located on the second and third floor. The staff was very helpful.
Friday we are off to Guangzhou for another week to handle the US paperwork. Then home on Sunday, Sept. 19.
