White Cloud Mountain
Today's activity was a trip to White Cloud Mountain. It's a very beautiful and peaceful place and so far, it's my favorite in Guangzhou.
We had lunch with the Straights and another family at Lucy's then headed off for the Real China. My friend wandered yesterday and found a street that was very raw China so we went there together today so I could see it. I actually could have done without seeing it. There were animals and fish awaiting slaughter and I accidently saw from frogs being slaughtered and prepared and I'm trying to bannish the memory from my ming forever. The lady used a pair of scissors to snip off the frog's head only it too, two snips, which must have been painful for the animal. All the animals were waiting in inhuman conditions and I was glad to get out of there. I don't need to see the Real China like that and neither does my daughter.
We caught the metro after that and found IKEA. I wanted to compare it to the one in the USA and it's got all the same stuff
We had dinner in our room after getting back and my little girl went right to bed. She tested me tonight and I passed the test so she is having a very good sleep after a scolding, which she took stoically. That's why I'm pretty sure it was a test to see if I'd follow through, if I care, etc....
