Yesterday we walked to the Grand Mosque. We ate lunch at a really good restaurant - we had spicy cold noodles (Piper loved them), some sort of well-done meat (I believe it was mutton which is very popular here), and something that was like an egg roll but in a very soft shell (maybe dumplings?). We then came back to the hotel to look up more sight seeing places online. We took a taxi to the Dazhao Temple. It was beautiful and so much bigger than we had thought. There were many shops & vendors in the Temple. We bought a small silver Buddah statue.
All of the people here are so friendly. They all wave to us and attempt to speak to us. Chloe said she feels like a rock star as everyone is taking the kids pictures. There are not alot of American's that visit Hohhot and they are having trouble figuring out why we have a Chinese baby. One lady pointed to Piper's hair & then to mine and shrugged her shoulders. I pointed at Piper and said China - the lady then said "oh, China baby! Lucky go to America". We met another lady that spoke English - she had a beautiful baby in a walker. She asked about Piper and also said she was glad she gets to go to America.
