As you may have guessed, I will be away from my computer for the next 10-12 days. But I promise great new pictures and stories when I return. I’m also brainstorming new topics. So keep reading and writing me emails or comments. I may not respond for the next few days, but I will read them all at some point.
In the meantime, a story…Last night my boss hosted a somewhat formal Chinese dinner with lots of food and lots of toasts and lots of rounds of gan bei. It was mostly foreigners but there were enough Chinese speakers there to necessitate speaking both languages. So I told a story in Chinese. It was funny. And people laughed! … I made a joke in Chinese! How fantastic is that! I think that means my Chinese is progressing.
æœˆé¥¼èŠ‚å¿«ä¹ï¼(yes, I know you can’t really say that in Chinese, but it sounds funny)
And Happy October National Day! (sorry don’t know how to type that in Chinese)
