On the Town

It’s amazing just how quickly friends become like family when one is living abroad. We are all in the same situation over here; none of us have family in China therefore we learn to lean on each other instead. So, when someone has a birthday, we must celebrate! Carol and Melissa took me out for my birthday when they had only met me once. I had no idea that they would become such dear friends. I truly do not know what I would do without them. Thanks Melissa and Carol!

Carol turned 26 on Sunday; so on Saturday, her fiancé surprised her with a night on the town that included a jazz club, and ice bar and dinner with a view of the Bund. Jim and I had our first night out without Jameson since the weekend before we left the States.

The Pearl Tower and Bund are so lovely at night...

Of course they had to do a China pose with the obligatory peace sign...
 

This week Jameson and I finally visited the Shanghai Aquarium and made another trip to Century Park. We are both fighting a virus that makes us nauseous, tired, sniffly and so on, so our week was a little quieter than usual. Please pray that this virus goes away before Saturday when I have a chance to play and sing for Touching Heaven at AGIF Pudong.

Please also pray that I may find a keyboard soon so that I may practice at home.  Although I sing every day, I miss being able to play the piano daily and my skills are suffering from the lack of practice.

    Looks like a fun night out! Good luck with the virus - those are no fun. Now we seem to get them x4! I'm sure your skills are still amazing on the keyboard. You have such a lovely gift! Absolutely beautiful! Have a very blessed week. Much love.
