Emily's flight from Beijing went well and she landed here in Guangzhou at 2:10 p.m. as scheduled. A driver picked her up from the airport and brought her the 45 minutes to the Garden Hotel where Daddy and Qu Yan Lucy were waiting in the lobby for her and Mommy stayed in the room in case there would be a phone call from the driver or Emily. We were very thankful to have no incidences and have Em with us again!
We decided to try "Malaysian Cuisine" for our supper. Emily was hungry and we ate early. At 5:00 we had the restaurant to ourselves. We ordered some pasta, rice and meat dishes (ordering based on the pictures from the menu!) and shared everything. We decided that Malaysian wasn't our favorite but we gave ourselves a pat on the back for trying something new and different.
Since Emily had not done any sightseeing or shopping in the Guangdong province, we decided to visit yet another plaza that we were told was about a 10 minute taxi drive from the hotel. Ok -- that is IF you're not leaving the hotel at rush hour when everyone and their brother is trying to grab a taxi also! After waiting about 20 minutes to get a taxi and then traveling about 30 minutes in heavy traffic we arrived at the destination! This shopping district was more modern and westernized then any other we had visited.
