Taco Sunday

To make up for the national Golden Week Mid-Autumn Festival holiday (a week off, starting on Thursday), the Chinese government requires everyone to work on the Sunday before and the Saturday after the holiday week. So, our Sunday felt more like a Monday today. But, we made up for it by heading into the city after work to scout out Mexican food (or, at least, the closest you can get to to it here) and to explore the area around Huai Hai Lu (one of many busy shopping streets.) Here's a picture of Jeff, basking in burrito bliss and some lanterns decorating the street. With the holiday coming up, there are decorations being hung up everywhere! (Especially as this year is the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.)

Meanwhile, our thoughts are with my dad and family as he celebrates his retirement today. Wish we could be in two places at once!


  1. Taco Sunday...this is so appropriate for today since our Farewell Luncheon for your parents is a Fiesta Festival...complete with tacos and fajitas and lots of Mexican side dishes. :)

  2. Carrie and Jeff...I sent you a message on Facebook with the photo album marked "Larry Henning's Retirement" Let me know if and when you are able to see it. Thanks! sss

  3. Thanks for the solidarity ... but, alas, we had no beer at church!
