Today we toured Beijing. We did the Hutong Tour first with a Rickshaw ride.
The boys loved it! Very fun...
Then, we visited a local Chinese family in their home.
We visited the silk factory next & learned all about how silk is made. Very informative for the boys to see!
These jars show the stages of the silk worm.
Stretching the silk...
Next was lunch. It was great! And abundant!!
After lunch, we visited Tiananmen Square & The Forbidden City.
This is our entire group together.
Our guide, George.
We saw an acrobatic show last, but most of us slept through it :) It was a great, but very long day. We were blessed with absolutely perfect weather! And considering that the boys woke up before 3 am.... they were very out of it by the end of the day. Hopefully we'll sleep better tonight & wake up rested in the morning. Tomorrow, we will see the Great Wall & visit the Jade Factory. Then another family & ours plan to visit New Hope Foster Home where Naomi was for a couple of years. She had both of her cleft surgeries while there. VERY excited about going there! Only 3 more sleeps till Naomi!!!
