On Monday, November 14, our guides said they were taking us to the countryside. I was picturing open spaces where our children could play in the meadows. Instead it turns out that the country to them meant an agricultural village a half hour outside of Nanchang. It was an interesting tour - we learned a lot about how rural Chinese people live. The people there were so warm and welcoming and seemed to truly enjoy our visit as much as we did. Natalie's birthparents may live in a village like this...very thought provoking.
