|When we visited Dihua Street to stop by the Fabric Market, |
we stumbled upon a street festival preparing for the upcoming Chinese New Year!
|I introduced the Okies to some local desserts:|

|We showed the ladies our "Mexican" food restaurant - Macho Tacos...|
It's not quite Tex-Mex, but still...Yum!
|We toured another temple where people go to be healed, blessed, or pray for good health|
|We strolled through the historically famous Grand Hotel, sitting high on the hillside overlooking the city|
|Thumbs up to the white folk with the flags|
I was of course sorry to see my Mom & Sister go, but I am so glad that we had such a great visit! :D And I feel like we had time to show them most of the things I had hoped they might experience on this first trip.
