The last few weeks

Hi to everyone!

Sorry we’ve been behind on posts the last few weeks. You’d think with having the whole week off of Oct. 1st for National Day we’d have time. Instead we spent time visiting parts of town that we had meant to see, and enjoyed watching Leo grow bigger and smarter all the time.

We’ve been watching the news back home of all the financial turmoil. People on this side don’t seem too affected in day to day life, probably because the average citizen here doesn’t own a lot of stock, if any at all. We hope things stabilize pretty soon.

For some more interesting updates of what we’ve been doing, please check out our picture post on our other blog:

And on another note, we leave you with one more comment from our outspoken speech teacher. After a Russian classmate delivered a speech in the front of the room, she said with a smile:

“I hear two things about Russian men. One, they drink liquor. Two, after they drink they like to beat their wives.”

    Leo’s paparazzi are hilarious.

    My question for your teacher is, “What’s the Chinese word for ‘tact’?” :o)

    P.S. I’m the “unknown” comment on the pic blog. :o)
