Yes, it’s a real thing. Apparently it’s one of the few holidays not celebrated in America but it’s a big deal in many other countries. Many schools had celebration, including one I teach at. It was a lot of fun actually. They rented a bounce house and a wading pool with boats and had all kinds of games. There are only 5 kids in the preschool class, but the school is located in a big gated apartment community where everyone knows each other, so families were stopping by all afternoon:
And I finally booked my next visa run-I’ve been debating where to go for a month but I decided last minute to go to Busan (formerly Pusan). I leave at 2:50am on a Thursday-joy 😦 But I’ll have two full days there before coming back on a Saturday. I’m so excited to be going anywhere besides Hong Kong for once!
