Our China Family!

Mr Wan isn’t our driver this time. BUT Wan Zhi, Gu Shao Bing and Wan Jia Xiu are our China Family!

We don’t get to see them often. Wan is busy driving for someone else, and we are busy.BUT when we do see him, it’s great! Wan Jia Xiu is home from Teacher’s college on a Summer break so we arranged to have dinner.

Wan Jia Xiu has had an amazing second year, her English is fantastic, and along with her studies she decided to have some personal goals. She always complained how big she was ( especially compared to other Chinese girls) and so she started running! She runs every day and has lost a LOT of weight! She looks REALLY good!!

Tonight was a wonderful dinner. A reunion and a celebration. Celebrating our return to China and the reunion of two families who have become close. Even didi was there tonight (our apple guy in China that we buy anything apple we need) and because he is Mr. Wan’s didi, he is our family too.

There was LOTS of food tonight. Mr Wan remembers all our favorites and we even tried something new tonight…donkey dumplings! Our favorite Chinese dish jaozi made with donkey meat ( supposedly the best meat in China because it is EXTREMELY lean) It was very good!

What a great evening! Now I am off to bed because tomorrow we are up early and to the airport!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
