Back to Normal

Well another set of guests have come and gone. It's amazing how quickly time flies when you are having fun. Art and Judy enjoyed themselves so much so that they are talking about coming back next year, assuming we are still here.

It's interesting how everyone has had some trepidation when coming to visit us, and by the end of their stay, guests are quite comfortable about travelling within China. In fact our first guest, Emily is returning in November for 10 days. If nothing else, this year has gone by very quickly.

People have a perceived idea of what China may be like, either through friends advice, (which isn't always on the positive side) or through books or media, but it's nice to see everyone has been pleasantly surprised after staying with us.

It's always fun when we get to spend time with family and friends here in China, as it brings a little of home and comfort when people visit and of course it doesn't hurt when everyone comes with little gifts.

Ah, now it's time to go and clean, do laundry, stock up the fridge again.
