Our hotel is on Shamian Island and faces the Pearl River. It is a small, lush, quiet oasis, where a bunch of embassies used to be. We had lunch at an outdoor cafe (Ed has a hamburger!) and walked around. Lots of people wanted to speak English to us, and once again some Chinese ladies told me my child was too hot and to take off her sweater! Sophie does sweat a lot so maybe that's why they are saying that.
Here is is entertaining some grandmas in the park.
