In addition to her job teaching English, Mui also tutors students in English on Saturdays.  Four of her students stopped by and had a great time with Gianna and Portia.

We saw two of the girls later on our way to the bookstore.  They were excited to see us again!!

Saturday afternoon we visited Li Ying's apartment.  She is such a wonderful hostess and keeps an immaculate apartment.  We are so proud for her!!

Li Ying showing us her photo album.  She even had some pictures of Clare in there, and she gave me one!

Two sweeties!

Okay, so this one's a little ornery!  She put the creme from the middle of a cookie on her face.

Li Ying made tea.

Next, we went to the beach.  It was a little cool and windy, but we still had a great time!!

These people are digging for something to eat.  Ewww!!

Our plane left a 1:40 pm on Sunday, so we just hung out Sunday morning and went to the market to buy noodles, which Mui's mom used to prepare a meal for us.

Walking to the market

Fresh noodles!!
