Merry Christmas

The Christmas season is upon us. Qian, my parents and brother, and I saw a performance of "The Christmas Carol" at the Kansas City Repertory Theater last night. I have quite a Christmas buzz going on after seeing that. This is a truly special time of year.

My brother is back in town (and the US) for the first time in a year and a half. It's been great seeing him. I have several family events in the next few days. In addition to the more Christmas-y stuff, I'm going to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to cheer on the division leading Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Tennessee Titans.

I want to thank the readers who continue to frequent this blog. I'm going to try to keep it going even though I'm no longer in China. I'm still having a fun time and hope to continue blogging indefinitely.

This picture below - from our trip in July to Chicago - is what we would send if Qian and I were ones to send out Christmas cards:

Merry Christmas to all.

Happy Christmas Qian and Mark. May the new year bring more happiness and joy for you.

Your blog is always a wonderful read and its great that you continue blogging about China. Those of us who have been there will have an enduring love affair with that country and your blog is an integral part of that love affair

I know this comment is a bit belated but just wanted to say, thanks for keeping up the blog! Although I no longer live in China myself, I always enjoy coming here every few weeks and reading about your thoughts and adventures on China and life.
