Back in Xiamen

Tina and I are now safely back in our current home after a quick 14 hour flight from Chicago to Shanghai that put us in yesterday evening. An early night to bed after meeting some coworkers and today we made the final hour and a half flight down to Xiamen.

It was a packed trip this year filled with family and friends and once we get some of the photos that we took downloaded and organized we will provide a quick recap of the time that we spent back in Canada and the States.

As for Xiamen, it's warmer then the -18C (0F) that Chicago plunged into once we left on Monday morning, but it's still a chilly 11C (55F). I know that doesn't seem too cold, especially if you're back in those sub-zero temperatures, but remember that there isn't any heat in this part of China. We were welcomed back into our cold concrete apartment with the only comforting thing being that the humidity was at an amazingly low 50%.

I'm sure that you'll hear more from us about the weather in the following months, but for now it just feels good to be back in our apartment, unpacking, doing laundry, and just getting back into the routine that we have known for the last year and a half.
