Eva's TB test results required just one quick glance-she hardly even has a mark left.  Then it was off the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees.  I love those trees; here on the island when the wind whistles over the cobblestones and brick and ruffles the leaves, carrying humidity with it...ahhh.  The temple was nice, but not that different from the one on the mountain in Guiyang, except that pictures were allowed inside the temple here, the monks were  moving about, and there was a statue of a famous Chinese poet which Little Baby got a kick out of.  We returned, had lunch at Subway, and then took Eva to the pool-now that her TB test has been read, she can go swimming.  The orphanage ladies told me that she had never been, but boy did she love it!  Now she knows why I wouldn't let her wear that ruffly pink thing she kept pulling out of the suitcase before now, too!

This next picture is not a pose.  The girl was jumping up and down and screeching with laughter, she was so happy!

We arrived early.  The pool is closed until 2:00 and it is on the rooftop of the East Wing (which is another building) and we are staying in the West Wing.  So here is a kaleidoscope of pictures of Eva while waiting.
