Our first stop on our shopping excursion today was the jade and pearl markets where Jen proceeded to drop a couple thousand yuan on a jade bracelet and some pearls. After jade and pearl shopping we headed over to Shamian Island for some more shopping. When we adopted Grace we stayed on Shamian Island at the White Swan Hotel. The hotel is currently under renovation and we were pretty sad to see it completely gutted. The rumors of there being a lot less shops catering to adoptive parents is a bit over-exaggerated. We found at least a dozen shops selling souvenirs for adoptive parents. The prices are a bit more expensive and the owners are a bit less willing to bargain but there were deals to be had. We have a suitcase full of loot for Cameron and Grace to show for it.
Tomorrow is another off day for us. We don't have any definite plans though. Possibly a trip to Canton Tower or a Buddhist temple.
