Message from Vicki:Today was our free day but there was an opportunity to accompany another group to Shamian Island. We took the short bus ride over to the other side of town. Shamian Island is where we stayed during our last two adoptions. However, this year the island is under total renovation in preparation for the upcoming Asian Games in November. It was hard to recognize some of the buildings through all of the scaffolding and most of the streets and sidewalks were under repair or being repaved entirely. The video attached is from a park area where the locals go in the morning to practice Tai Chi, dance, sing and play "hackie sack" using these feathered shuttle cock. Kami and I got into the fun with one of the local vendors and then ended up shelling out about 20 RMB ($3) for one of the toys! Great sales program!! It was a lot of fun.
