The people were very nice and used to adoptive families taking a tour through their village. I wanted to ask if they get paid for us to go through there, but I didn't. Our guide said that we could take as many pictures of the people as we wanted. When we got to the second half of the village and I showed them a picture of a little boy I had taken, they started lining up to have their pictures taken. I am going to develop them, send them to our guide and she will take them to them. The people in the village spoke their own dialect and neither of the guides could communicate with them.
Since last night was our last night in Nanning, we asked Kara if there was anyplace special she wanted to go. She chose the Brazilian Barbeque. Our guide, Mary, said this was the most special of restaurants in Nanning. The servers come around with all sorts of meats and fish on large skewers and shave off all the meat you want until you say you are full. I thought the food was very good, but Leila, our meat eater, decided she was a vegetarian last night. I think it is so good for her to be here to appreciate how vastly different everything is going to be for Kara once we return home.
Well, off to shower and then Skype Mia and my mom. We called home for the first time Wednesday night and it was so great to their voices. I am thrilled to say that Mia has been doing very well at home and that this has been a great opportunity for the two of them to bond. (MMMMMMMMMWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, Mia!! We love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
