We went to safari zoo yesterday. It was so fun. Good to get out of the room. The weather was perfect. 70s and sunny. We went on a safari train ride first. The only thing separating the animals from each other and us was a few flimsy looking electric wires. They must keep them well fed! Then we walked through the zoo part and saw lots more white tigers and pandas. There are 300 white tigers in the world and this zoo has 150 of them! The pandas were so cute too. After we went back and took another nap. We are so very tired. Then McDonald's! It was soooo good. Tasted like home. Isabel wasn't wild about the burger but loved the fries!
Things we miss most:
-Clean clothes! We have been hand washing (PM has) in the tub. We got some done in Changsha and it was almost $60 for some underwear and shirts.
-our beds. The beds here are amazingly hard. Your pressure points (hips, shoulders) hurt so bad in the morning
-food. Even though there is familiar restaurants it still has a different twang to it.
-drinking water from the tap. You have to boil all water here. All hotel rooms have water boilers
-our family and pets! We miss our family of course but we miss the dogs and cat pretty bad too :) we saw a lot of dogs in Changsha but haven't seen any here
