Dinner with Friends

Tonight we went out to dinner with our friends, Michelle, Tam, Howie,
Raychel, Steven, Ayi and, I'm so sorry, I can't remember the
gentleman's name! We went to a local restaurant, which was VERY
good! Afterwards, we strolled and shopped in the non-tourist area,
which had FAR better prices. IBoy bought 2 pairs of jeans for $10, a
warm winter coat for $15, 2 pairs of girl's tennis shoes with the
local favorite cartoon character for $10, thick wool socks for about
$0.75 each, and the list goes on. It seemed wrong NOT to purchase them!

Oh - I nearly forgot - the dinner - a few choice dishes were swan
(very yummy), snake (also good), chicken feet - yes I ate all of them
- not all of the chicken feet - some of each of the dishes! Michelle
ate the fish head - I chose not to go quite that far, but she assures
me that it is yummy! Dad ate one last year and said it was just
fine! Raychel says that the swan head is delicious, also, and
encouraged me to try it, but I figured that would be rude to take her
favorite piece!

That settles it. Next time I go to China, I'm dragging you with me. Good times seem to be abundant there with you around!
