one taught you that this was not acceptable wouldn't we be the same? Are the educated different here? I am sure they are and I wish I could see it from their side. We are living in a very middle class area of Xi'an but are spending our days with nannies who come in from the countryside every day and work 8am to 8pm six days a week for more money than the average workers gets in China at around $25 dollars a month.....plus one big meal a day. There are 21 children at Starfish. Did I mention that the orphanage had 600 kids plus or minus? And that it is one of thousands of orphanages. I am not to offend the Chinese government so am limited in what I can say. We are trying to find out where the Catholic Church is here ,but anything with Catholic is blocked on the internet and there are no yellow pages, and I am sure I don't know how anyone finds anything here because if you ask they say "I don't know". We are glad we came and are having a fascinating
time. Everyday is a real adventure. I am glad Isabel blogs...she sees things differently than I. I would not like anyone to base their opinions on the people of China or the country on my thoughts. I am after all a guest here.
