We've been here for three weeks today, though in some ways, it feels like much longer. We're both into the grove at work, and feel like we know our way around (at least our part of the city) reasonably well. To help it feel more like home, I'm excited to report that the postal system does indeed work here. We got our first pieces of mail on my birthday (perfect!) and have gotten more since. It seems to take about two weeks in this direction.
On a different note, today was Teacher's Day in China and one of Jeff's students celebrated by giving him a large teddy-bear bouquet (literally, a bouquet made of teddy bears.) Apartment decorations - check!
