Time with the Mexican

Now that the Mexican has been over here working for almost 4 months, he decided to bring his wife and daughter over to Xiamen for a quick week. They get to catch up with their old friends from when they lived here; he gets to see his family and all that other good stuff...

Last Saturday we took Laura and Rene out to a new restaurant in town, Antoine's, which is a fine dining / jazz bar type of place. Very swanky for Xiamen and we had a good time enjoying some nice, albeit expensive, wine.

Later that night they picked up Alejandra, who had gone out to meet some of her old school friends, and we had a few drinks with them before calling it an early night and heading home.

Sunday whilst Rene was at work we tool Laura and Alejandra over to Coyote, the new Tex-Mex restaurant in Xiamen, and enjoyed their brunch menu and some margarita's.

Once Rene showed up it was a quick stop over to Me & You 2. We were going to take everyone over to the night market for dinner, but what with jet lag and just general tiredness somewhere around 18:00 we decided that we wouldn't make it waiting until 21:00 to eat.

It's been good to catch up with them, even if it is just for a short time. Tina played up a girls day out yesterday, going out for massages and then pedicures, so I'm sure they are enjoying it here more then they would be back in Seattle.
