It’s Thanksgiving week (woo hoo) and although it’s not a holiday in China (no days off work, boo) I’m still feeling the Thanksgiving vibes. The air turned cold today and we broke out the gloves so that helps with the Thanksgiving feeling. Kyle and I went out to eat (for the first time ever on Thanksgiving) and I’m looking forward to no cooking or dishes!
Thankful for life, love, family and friends (always!).
A good couple friend from Shanghai moved to the nearby city of Zhangjiagang this year. It’s only an hour and half bus ride from Shanghai (two with traffic) and finally this weekend we made up north to visit this relaxing city and dear friends. It consisted of hanging out in their apartment and eating but it was nice to spend time with friends especially in ‘less hectic than Shanghai’ atmosphere.
I was in Beijing last week for work and boy was it smoggy! After a busy week in Beijing I returned and went to the first NCAA basketball game in China: Washington vs. Texas. A recap in pictures below
I felt like this a lot last week.
But days go by and on to Beijing.
A selfie with Mao is a must in BJ, right?!
And back in Shanghai – our Uber driver’s creepy dolls below.
Fighting bears at the Mercedes Benz Center where the basketball game was held.
And my new friend with a pearl necklace at the nail salon.
