Folk Art Museum...
We began today by visiting the Chen Lineage Hall (also called the Guandong Folk Art Museum). It was a historical family compound that was later taken over by the government and filled with local art and history exhibits. We saw many artists doing their craft, and we were even able to buy some small pieces of their artwork to keep for Michael.
Besides the art museum, we also stopped at the local supermarket in Guangzhou to stock up on more supplies. Mainly, we had to buy more formula because Michael has been powering his bottles the last couple days (for example, this morning when he woke up, he drank 14 oz in a little over an hour). The good news is that he's already gained weight in the past week! You can easily see the difference just by looking at him, plus his skin is getting a lot more color to it.
