Sept. 20 - Guangzhou

Ready to go SHOPPING!!!

SO today I win the award not only was I very brave and had mushrooms in my omelet - I also walked a VERY LONG WAY to shop for pearls. Joe led a few of our Bethany families on a hunt for the pearl market we found four years ago when we were here. At first all we found was jade, but then, with further effort, we landed our pearl market!! But let's just say - it's a good thing it was at least slightly air conditioned - or I'm not sure even us shopper women would have stayed, we were just dying!!The Pearl Master - she was something - she kept telling us she was giving us the best deal! How is it that when you leave you got the best deal and they are still laughing!??!!?

She took her hat off AND her shoes off - she was chillin' while Mom and Dad were pearl hunting!Jada, Gabe, Lily and Anna
Patient Shoppers!

After pearl hunting - I jumped in the pristine lake for a swim.
OK - just kidding - this water is BROWN and GROSS - but I couldn't pass up the chance to capture the local man swimming on this hot day.Maybe I should have stopped and went fishing - he had enough poles! But no, far too hot for that too!Just to prove how hot I was!! Too bad you can't see the red - I looked like a beet! Staying inside now for the rest of the day - this girl just ain't cut out for this!!!

She is just darling. We traveled in July and I remember the tremendous heat. Even now when it is hot here I always say to my husband...it still is not China hot. :)

Jada is soooo cute in her outfit...and in any other outfit. Our gotcha day was 9/18 three yrs ago and I do remember the heat. We stayed in the pool alot.

Great pictures! Jada looks great. My Chloe has the same dress, but she doesn't have that adorable hat.

I keep complaing about the heat here, but it is nothing compared to what you are having to endure. I wish we would have shopped for pearls.

Hurry home.

Kristi said...

So funny, Becky! Knowing how you dislike the heat, you almost had me on the "swimming picture"! Love the pictures and updates! Jada is so adorable!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
