Beijing back in Beijing is taking some serious readjustment. It’s cold, smoggy, and I’ve been fighting the jet lag all week. So I cheered myself up by booking a couple more trips for this spring. Taiwan in March and Shanghai with Jess in April to see Wicked. I couldn’t get tickets in Beijing because the only ones not already sold out were crazy expensive. Shanghai had way more performances. Plus, I finally get to see Shanghai!

My kids were loopy this week after their break. I was so happy to see Friday. Kiki invited all CEC teachers to her house for dinner after work and we enjoyed Japanese hotpot and wine. Lots of wine.

Cucumbers and pigs stomach with cilantro dressing, (Yes, I did try it. Flavor good, texture-no), beef, crab, vegetables, and chicken to steam in the hotpot with sweet sauce.
