Tonight we had a group dinner at Lucy's Restaurant; which has western style food and is nearby the White Swan Hotel.

Ed finds a new woman on the way into Lucy's:

After dinner we walked for a bit and ran into "Kitty".
She is from Mia's Province and we spoke with her for
a while. She told us the girls from Guangxi cry a lot,
they are sensitive and they are very feminine. That's
our girl!! She knew that many of the girls from the
country are abandoned and seemed hesitant to say it
is because they want a boy...but when asked why, "she
said, yes everyone wants a boy!"


Daddy was tired of Mia giving him the cold shoulder so he held her and fed her (she's like a little bird!). He showed her the fish in the pond and the waterfall ~ all inside the White Swan Hotel ~ just so beautiful! She is doing better with him, but will try to put her arms out to me - I just say "keep feeding her", "keep her occupied" and then she is fine. She will stare at him and then turn her head when he looks her way - she's curious, but very unsure.

I forgot to add these to the previous post; they are photos from inside Nanning airport before we boarded the plane for Guangzhou. The girls had a good time walking around getting into trouble! Here are the three Guangxi girls: Abbey, Mia and Lia shopping up a storm!
Also a pic of Miss Mia, who will find the stair where ever we go!
