Saturday Lauren (the Foster Home intern) and I went to the Pearl Market in Beijing. We took the subway, the bus, and we walked. Although, I do NOT like public transportation (I'm high maintenance and would like to be dropped off at the door) it was worth it. I still haven't counted how many strands of pearls I purchased but I think it's around 25.



Today we went to church in Beijing. After church we had Tex-Mex food. I live in the Tex-Mex capital of the world so I didn't have high hopes for our lunch. :) It was actually really good. After lunch we went to the Flower Market. The flowers were amazing and really cheap!










On our way home we stopped for a snack at Dairy Queen. Yes, they have DQ in China. I can't wait to go back to the Foster Home tomorrow morning. I really missed the kids this weekend. I'm leaving on Wednesday...Boo! Wow~ the trip has gone by too fast.

Wow! What a day! The pearl market looks like a shopper's dream. Mealtime must have made home feel really close.
