A change in plans

We were up and prepared for a half-day tour of a replica of a village for this area of China. Our hopes and dreams were shattered after breakfast when our leader Wang Baoli called to inform us that the trip was cancelled. It had rained all night and the dirt roads were impossible. With no alternatives, we stayed in the hotel, assessing our “belongings” and packing them into our suitcases. We had lunch with Baoli and son and later her husband came and they took Phyllis out shopping. Tomorrow at 7 a.m. we will meet Baoli, her husband, and her son and visit Baoli’s husband’s work place and Exposition Park.
