Ahmi - just one of the girls
This picture was taken by Mom at the Beijing Summer Palace in China during the summer of 2007. Ahmi was 9 at the time and after just a little convincing Mom got a group of young students to let Ahmi into their after school gathering. The place where this was taken was very scenic in itself. Not pictured is the long carved walkway extending for a few hundred yards to either side bordering a pristine lake where there were boat tours. I think these girls were quite unused to the influx of tourists, China wasn't the most popular vacation destination at this time, and seeing an American girl was rather exciting for them. Kudos to Mom for seizing the opportunity for a great picture!
