Good Bye Chongqing, hello Guangzhou
The airplane trip out of Chongqing was kind of sad and happy at the same time. Ying Li was obviously happy to be with us- heck, she is just plan happy to be anywhere, except if she has a wet diaper or if she thinks you should be dropping everything you are doing so you can hold her. :}
From the first night when she woke with a startle every half hour to cry out, to today where she sleeps through the night. She occasionally wakes to cry but she self comforts by making sucking sounds. She turns her head to either side, raises her shoulder and sucks the air- they must have pinned little suckers to the shoulders of the kiddos.
Walking around Guangzhou is wierd because it is so familiar.
More shops than before and I feel better trying my Chinese. Basically you need to know how to say how old the child is, where they are from, where you live and "oh, my Chinese is not so good" and you will be fine.
