Happy New Decade

Tian and I brought in the New Year and the New Decade together at “The Park Restaurant”, where our friend Chris plays in a band on Thursday nights.  We met a group of people there and had a nice time socializing over a late dinner and drinks.  Then the music started, and we hit the small dance floor. 

The opening band was small but fun.  I was pretty proud of the fact that I could understand one of their songs.  Also, after the show I went up to them and held a pretty good conversation, even despite the noise.  Progress…

At midnight, we took a short break and counted in the New Year and a New Decade!  A half hour later, the party had pretty much disipated, and we took a taxi home.  Both Tian and I were disappointed that we could not take the subway.  The subway closes at 11 p.m. even on New Years Eve.  Perhaps the taxi lobby is a powerful one here. 

The week of New Years, Tian and I also opened some Christmas gifts that my family had sent to us.  We had a lot of fun.  Thank you!
