Fri, 11/9: Chen Clan Ancestral Home & more smiles & giggles

Our guides took us and one other family out site seeing to the Chen Family Ancestral Hall today.  It was a beautiful building built in the mid 1800s by a wealthy and very large family in the province (Guangdong) for them to send their youth to be educated.  It was a beautiful building and had lot of displays of various arts from the province including fan making, embroidery, wood carving and handpainting (in which the artist used only his hands and no brushes to make very life like images, pretty cool).  We ended up taking the subway back, so Zoe has already taken her first subway ride!
Back at the room we had fun playing with her and German finally got some big smiles and giggles out of her.  She took and nap and woke up all smiles, so good to see considering she is usually sooooo serious.
