That is how I feel.  Today we took the subway again, but this time we had to change trains, TWICE!!!  For a country girl whose "town" merely has a caution light, I felt like I had conquered the world.

We took the subway back to Shamian Island.  This is a beautiful place and a we were able to get a couple of things for Sarah Joy as a way to remember her heritage.  While on the island we ate lunch at Subway.  A turkey sub is a turkey sub no matter where you are.

After returning to our hotel, we let sister play a while before heading out again.  This time we took the subway back to the part of town we had visited last night.  We strolled around the park and just took in the city.  It really is a beautiful place.  Jim had already decided he wanted street food so little sister and I opted for Burger King.  So far while here I have eaten Burger King, McDonalds, Subway, and KFC.  Pretty much the same as home with the exception of KFC.

Jim found his street vendors and tonight he dined on chicken hearts and mystery meat kabobs with an egg.  Sarah Joy, or littl bird as we have dubbed her, was eager to eat with dad even though she had just eaten.  We have found that she loves to eat no matter the food.

Tonight we rest well because tomorrow we have an early morning visit to the US Consulate for our exit interview!!!  Almost home.
