China encourages adopting families to experience Chinese culture. Two days of tourism were planned for our group before going our separate ways to meet the children. The sites, sounds and tastes were unforgettable.
In this second episode of Adopting Daphne, an agency guide shows us major attractions in and around Beijing, including Tiananmen Square and The Great Wall. We also get an intimate peek into everyday life in the city when we visit a tea room and go into a local neighborhood by rickshaw for a private lunch.
