Shots of Shamian Island

Here are a few more shots of Shamian Island taken on our walk today.

First, a group of musicians and singers performing traditional Chinese music in the park.
Next is an example of the architecture on the island and two varieties of poinsettias growing ... outside, mind you. When's the last time you saw that in the Northwest?

Assorted pics from our walk.
This was a shoe store we ran into that sold shoes with Mickey Mouse all over them. Couldn't tell if they were actual Disney products. Didn't see the TM sign anywhere.
And I couldn't make heads or tails what their sign meant. "MICKEY IN TRIP ... shall we in trip? feel so happy." Somebody interpret for me.
And finally, the ubiquitous Starbuck's. We didn't buy. Only walked in to smell. Tomorrow we may indulge for a taste of Seattle in Guangzhou.

We are looking forward to meeting you tomorrow. The weather there looks nice from the pictures, cannot wait to put on some other clothes since all our warm clothes are dirty from being in Beijing. We are nervous about our Big Day tomorrow. See you soon.
