Dinner

We changed our plans at the last minute and joined several families for dinner at the local Chinese Restaurant. The same restaurant that had the advertisement for the photo shown in the last post. I am sure the picture is of a baby pig, but Bob is convinced that it is a rat.

We had a wonderful meal with several courses; fried noodles, rice, dumplings, green beans, broccoli, hot spicy potatoes, sweet and sour chicken and a beef dish ( we did not try this one).

A standard part of our meals include a visit to the restroom for the girls. Almost all of the bathrooms in the past 2 weeks are equipped with a "squatty potty". The girls were so cute, I just had to take a picture.

Good night from China,

Theresa

It looks like a guinea pig to me! Ughhhh we had some VERY interesting food in China, which we ate just trying to be polite. Glad to see all the photos of those girls, they just look like best-est friends.

Boy, the girls must have stronger leg muscles than I do. I only had to use a squatty once in 2 weeks in China and I didn't think I was going to be able to get up:)
