So instead of going to Yifeng our guides planned some shopping for us this morning. First we went to some Porcelain stores where we picked up a nice tea set to give to Grace when she is older. After the porcelain shopping they brought us to a typical Chinese department store. The store looked like a typical Macy's that you would see in the US except shopping in a Chinese department store is a bit different. Jen saw a cute dress in the baby section that she wanted to get for Grace. So we went up to what we thought was a register to pay for it. The woman took the dress filled out a slip and gave it to us and told us that I had to go to the other side of the store to pay for it then come back to get the dress. When we got to the real register we found out that they did not take credit cards which we thought was a bit odd as the little porcelain shop we were in earlier did take credit cards. We finally got the dress paid for and then it was time for lunch.
We have been eating mostly in the hotel since we have been in Jiangxi so it was nice to get out and try something new. Jiangxi is known for its spicy food and this place did not disappoint. We also got to meet one of the courses of our meal.
When we got back Grace was really tired and had her first meltdown. I think you can really only classify it as a mini-meltdown as it did not last too long but it was the first time that we were not able to immediately calm her down when she got upset. I am sure there will be many more where that one came from. This pic is pre-meltdown.
Tomorrow we leave for Guangzhou, the flight there is pretty short so it will be a good test run for the 14 hour flight home. Before we leave we have a little more paperwork to take care of and we need to try to get our bags under the weight limit again.
We just had to post this video of Grace laughing. She really is too cute.
