well, after 2 nice months in the US, we are back to our home here in China. of course, we were sad to leave certain comforts, familiarities, people, and the abundance of playgrounds…
but then coming back here is starting to have certain familiarities too… so maybe that means being here is also like being back “home”.
and can’t beat being able to order a full breakfast for the whole family for 27 RMB (about $4 USD), delivered to your home for no extra fee, on the first morning you’re back since you have no food in the apartment… and still have leftovers to eat for the next day.
though watching the NBA semifinals with Chinese commentators just isn’t the same. but at least we can see the game, so i can’t complain. contrary to what a few have assumed, we do *not* get the same TV channels here as the US. not even close.
and if i had had my camera out at the time, i totally would’ve posted a picture here of the health officials who boarded our plane upon our arrival to Shanghai, fully donned in bunny suits and face masks to measure each passenger’s temperature to make sure there was no possible H1N1 cases. but since i didn’t have my camera and we weren’t allowed to get up out of our seats, you’ll just have to imagine it.
