|Waiting, not-so-patiently, for my mom at the airport.|
|A few happy tears!|
On the first Sunday she was here we took the bus to church and then ate at our favorite Mexican restaurant in Suzhou, Casa Zoe. On another day, we took in the sights on Walking Street and ate cotton candy and did some shopping. Because it was a holiday, there were many locals out and things were pleasantly crowded. Another holiday special was the smell of stinky tofu wafting around, nothing says vacation like foul-smelling food! I made it a priority to introduce my mom to my "purse guy" and we nabbed a very traditional Chinese meal (or not) for lunch at McDonald's.
|Next time mom gets some cotton candy too!|
