Monday is a state holiday in China, for the Dragon Boat Festival. Today was extremely rainy, but I convinced everyone to leave our small apartment and go experience the bamboo forest in the rain! We loaded up on umbrellas and a raincoat for Sophie - after a few "aww, Dad" and "Do we HAFTA?" cries of anguish, we made it out the door by 11:30.We wandered down this dark, misty path in the downpour, and we all commented that we felt like we were in some Chinese movie!
The exit from the bamboo forest, so GREEN and WET!
Peter loved being out in the misty, green forest and watching the water stream down the hills.
A little blurry, but I there are few shots of just Sue and I so I thought I'd include this one for posterity's sake.
We all came home soaked to the bone, although we had a good day in the rain.
