聖誕快樂 新年快樂!

Merry Christmas everyone! (at least that's what I hope those characters say...) 

I have some exciting news: tomorrow I leave for China!  It'll just be a quick trip, which is unfortunate, since I have to be back to leave for Guatemala.  My dear friend Yue'e is getting married in her hometown of Fuzhou, on the southern coast across from Taiwan.  It should be quite the adventure since my Mandarin only covers "hello", "thank you" and "I love you".

I also have to share my excitement over the white Christmas we currently have in North Dakota.  We've had a record snowfall this December and it's beautiful outside.  The downside has been the frigid cold (lots of highs below zero).  Yesterday my brother and I went inner tube sledding, but only managed to last outside for half an hour before we froze.

    Did I ever tell you I was in China? Back in May of 2004, I went with a student group to four cities in two weeks: Beijing, Changsha, Chongqing, and Yichang.

    So I learned just about as much Chinese as you did!

    Happy New Year and Safe Travels!
