Yesterday, we went to the local WalMart in Taiyuan to purchase some clothing to donate to our welfare institutes. Their prices on children's clothes were pretty good - comparable to the US. The prices on their snacks (crackers, cookies) were crazy-low! We were able to pick up some yogurt the boys will enjoy. It was a fun experience! Very crowded. Lots of moms and children who kept staring and pointing at us! We were happy to stop and say "Hello!" and "Ni hao!" to all of them!
Actually, it appears we are the only Caucasians in the city. People literally stop in their tracks to stare and point at us! I can only imagine what it will be like when we have our boys with us!
I am enjoying soaking up Taiyuan, but I am definitely looking forward to the warmer climate of Guangzhou!
