Day 83 : "EAd"

 Morning scooter ride

With Judah staying Friday night and Saturday with Gungsen, and because Zion was going on an "adventure" with Mom, Eden and I made a day of it. We left the house at 7am for CDIS to check in on the science fair, but then took off for the city. 

I love this pictures because it defines Eden on public transportation. She sits in the very front, right behind the driver, and cuddles up to the window. I also love it because it's Chengdu - the apartments and the small, busy stores that line the heavy traffic.

We explored the streets for a bit,

then we headed to one of my favorite streets Chengdu has to offer: U37.

Eden loved this wall:

and she loved this woman sewing and mending clothes. I think the feeling was mutual. 

She snacked on her favorite: tea eggs.

 Chengdu sidewalks: tiled and slick, always swept, with lined tiles for guiding the blind.

Several times throughout our walk, whenever we'd stop somewhere for a shot or food or whatever, I'd find her writing something on a nearby wall or bench or even just in the middle of the sidewalk. She had found a rock, as always, and was continually writing, "EAd" everywhere she could.

We ended with cuddles, coffee, and books. A perfect ending to a great "EAd" day.

"Eden And daddy." 

Definitely one for the books.
