They love China but have found crossing the street to be terrifying. I had told them it was like Frogger and now they understand what I meant. You don't just cross all the way. You go...then you stop halfway across so you don't get hit by the oncoming traffic. Sometimes one of the lanes has a driver who will stop but the one next to him does not. So... Frogger. It doesn't matter that you are in the cross walk. This time there are a lot more motorbikes and three of us have had near misses with them.
Tomorrow is Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, rickshaw ride to the Hutong area for lunch and the afternoon at CCCWA offices where the girls were matched to our family.
