April 2nd, 2013

Hi class Tomorow is the day we come home!!!!! Today we packed to go home.Me, Mom, and Annie, Shannon and Keann (Pronouced like this,Keenin) tried to go to the park in the DOWN-POUR RAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!so we went back and then me and dad went out in the downpour rain!........ but we didn't find the geo cash we were looking for. So we went back to the hotel and then me and Dad took a taxi to Walmart and bought 3 cans of baby food. One of them was corn and that's all I know. We had Chinese mcdonald's for dinner. Now Annie is crying.


The Last 4 days we've been here. We were in Guangzhou. What did this city used to be called? What language do they speak here?

Hi class! Last night it snowed about 4 to 5 inches in Beijing (pronounce it like this Bayjing). Today I went on a airplane From Beijing to ZhengZhou (pronounce it like this Jungjoe). When we got there we rode in a car but it smelled like gasoline. The last few days I have been getting LOTS and LOTS OF STARES because I'm Chinese and my parents are American.


I'm excited to meet my new sister tomorrow. Did you know that Zhengzhou has a sister city in America? Where is it?

I went to the Forbidden City. There was a giant picture of a man at the entrance. Then we went into the Forbidden City, but we had to go past security to make sure we weren't doing anything bad. The Forbidden City is where the royalties (Emperors) lived. We went past the gate and stopped to eat lunch. We saw the throne room, the bedrooms, and the places where they held feasts and banquets.


The toilets here are really weird. They're called "Squatty Potties."


Who is the man pictured at the entrance to the Forbidden City?


Leave your answer in the guest book!

Today I went to church. It was not like any ordinary church. There were green walls and just one big room. They acted out the Bible stories instead of reading them. It was an International church, so there were children from many different countries. I sang "Jesus Loves Me" in Chinese.
