We made a trip last summer to visit the orphanage where our son as originally. As I'm sure many observe, it's a land of many contrasts. I thought I'd pass along a couple of photos- from from YangShou (near the Li River) of the brooms which we saw even people cleaning the roads using, a humorous photo showing even in remote areas wireless & coffee are important, and some of the less industrialized sights we saw. Also, I include a picture of some Xian costumed acrobats checking their cell phones between sets. Perhaps these might not be the typical pictures you get. I'd also be happy to talk with you about our experiences visiting the orphanage if you think that'd be helpful.
