Kate and Adrian’s Visit

We had such fun with Kate and Adrian! We both had an October break, so they came up to us this time. Next, we’ll go down for Adrian’s show opening. It’s such a novelty to actually have family in the same country–it’s AWESOME! (Adrian and Kate are in Suzhou while Corky and Sally are in Hong Kong. Plus, it’s not the same country, but Brian and Jen are close in Jakarta, Indonesia. A wonderful first for us to be so close to three siblings and their loves;) All week long we toured and hung out, cooked or ordered in, rode bikes or taxied around, shopped or saw sights, AND always managed to have a great time.

Here are a slew of pictures from our week together:

The Great Wall of China with Kate and Adrian

The weather has been spectacular! The Chinese can indeed control their weather. They shoot pellets into the sky to make it rain or de-fog the sky. It’s pretty amazing that they can do this–we just wish they did it all the time, not just for National Day. We have really been enjoying the weather, and yesterday our visit to the Great Wall was the best yet. We could see mountains for miles and miles. It was wonderful. Here are our three pics:

We made phone calls from the Great Wall of China--Kate's on the phone with her folks in this picture.
