Liuzhou; Tian Tian's City

While driving from Guilin to Liuzhou, 
it was nice to have a little Karaoke music in the van

we saw a big truck full of chickens, on their way to the pet store, of course
and a public service announcement for safe driving
this is Liuzhou People's Hospital,
it was mentioned on Tian Tian's paperwork 
Liuzhou is a very nice industrial city
very modern
 traditional China mixed in

this is the pet store, 

I hope all the chickens made it here safely

I bet Tian Tian had French Fries here
lobby of our hotel
very busy downtown city center

and we stopped for ice cream
views from the hotel room


  1. Marla,

    I am following your journey . I visit your block everyday, sometimes three times a day, it is attractive. When I saw the picture that Ava and Jakey ate the noodles and broccolis, I just cannot help laughing...

    Ava does not look like what we worried before on how she could survive in China.
    She really act like a little Mermaid in the "Chinese sea".

    I wonder if some Chinese jumped out of Jakey's throat... and you were understood...

    Talk to you later.


  2. Love you all looks amazing! I am so excited for tomorrow. Enjoy : ) Nicole S.

  3. To the Chinese Crew: I am soo enjoying your adventure through China. I am especially loving the "pet chickens." I have never laughed soo hard. So excited about tomorrow. What a wonderful way to celebrate the 1st day of Summer, with the welcoming of a new family member. It's also Lucie's bday too!!! Enjoy!


Thank you so much for stopping by! We love to hear from you and appreciate every comment! Your thoughts, well wishes, and words of wisdom will be preserved here in our blog, we plan to turn it into a hard cover book for our daughter.
