#Christmas Ride!

24 Dec

​Awwwww  #Santa picked me up yesterday for a ride on his way to deliver #toys!  ❤️💖 Wasn’t he sweet!  Although his reindeer have upgraded to being disguised a lot like a #Toyota. 😆 Thanks to #Didi for the opportunity to be sleigh escorted to my #Christmas #party!

Happy #Thanksgiving!

Delicous treasure from one of my adorable students today – another gave me some Bon Bons.  Since I had to work on #thanksgiving (not a Holiday abroad 😭), this was quite the treat!

Heading Home

7 Oct

​Waiting to head home to #China!

RANT: Reminded how much I HATE #United Airlines.  Had to pay $100 for my second suitcase – KoreanAir, JAL, Air China, China Southern . . . . all give me two suitcases when flying to Asia from US.  Not the American airline company though!. 

Rant over – now Waiting at my gate 😜 Judging by the #dinosaur bones – it might be a long wait 😂 Flight just delayed Due to broken plane. 😣

#Airport Food and Fun

2 Oct

​Fun times with a 5 hour #layover at #ICN #airport!  The historical parade was out in force for photo shoots, and #angelinus coffee served up some delicious #peachtea and cookies & cream smoothie.

Happy Chinese Lantern Festival!

11 Feb

Happy Lantern Festival!  Tonight is the night (15 days after #ChineseNewYear ) when the Chinese light paper lanterns and send them up to the sky.  

My picture wasn’t very good 😭 I’ll post a better one later. But the #moon sure was pretty! Here in Zhengzhou, we have the highest smog records for the country, so the moon is a rare night.  Today was perfect for the festival! Clear skies, brisk air, and a good wind. 😄 

Wishing you all the best and a great upcoming year! 🍀
