Feasts & Friends
Like everywhere, a lot of socialization in China is done over meals. Over the past couple of months, we have met up with friends to celebrate different occasions and shared meals together. Unfortunately, we didn’t remember to take pictures at all of them, but here are a few to give you a taste (pun intended) of the experience.
Our friend Ethan (center) was a teacher at Tian's school, but he had to quit early for personal reasons. He treated us to dinner to thank Tian and Toni (2nd from left) for all of their help since he arrived. He headed back to the US the next morning.
We met up with Tian's friend from high school and her husband, who live in Beijing. Her friend's younger cousin also joined us. We had a heck of a time finding this restaurant.
A tri-lingual dinner - French, English, Chinese. Tian and I know Florie from when she was an amity at MPA! She has a Chinese fiance, and they were visiting his family. He is a passionate Chinese artist living in France. This was a truly international evening.
