Only 3 1/2 more days left in the Du. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself! The things that I am going to do when I get home: visit friends, see our dogs, got to Trader Joes, swim, have a few cocktails, have Cold Stone Creamery ice cream, go to the grocery store, go to the mall, go to my nice gym, dine out at real Western restaurants, go to Target, go to Changing Hands Book Store, go to my knitting group, and the list goes on! As you can see I really miss the food from home!
This week I learned how to make my ayi's yummy jiaozi (Chinese dumplings). I am going to make them for my book club. I thought it would be fitting we are reading the book "The Good Women of China" by Xinran. The book gives you a good look into the minds of Chinese women who lived through the Cultural Revolution. I would definitely recommend it.
I think Jonny is getting really sad to see us go. He decided to take tomorrow off and hand out with me and the kids. We should have a fun filled week-end with lots of packing and hopefully a little day trip.
