Making memories

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Today, while we were awaiting the others arrival in Beijing, my daughter, Tia, and I spent the day being a little more adventurous than normal.  We tried a few new foods for breakfast and then decided to venture out to the Beijing Zoo.

Getting there was the biggest challenge as we chose to take the subway.  The lady at the hotel front desk circled our subway stops for us and we set out on our adventure….We made it there and back without incident, even as we purchased tickets, changed subway lines 3 times, and found our way across town and back speaking a foreign language and deciphering signs along the way.

The zoo was beautiful, the pandas were fun to see, and there were people EVERYWHERE!

We got a good laugh out of the fact that their “American animal” in the zoo was a raccoon and then look at this cute little car!

We did a little shopping on the way back and ended our day much earlier than it seemed, with exhausted feet and a nice cold drink from Starbucks.
