An Invitation

“Would u go there tomorrow?” read a text we received at 9:35 one night from a local friend who tutored our children in Chinese when we first moved here.

“Tomorrow evening 8:00pm is our International Bicycle Competition Opening ceremony, our mayor give us 4 entrance ticks for foreigners, they want invite you to come,so,would u go there tomorrow?”

But of course! 🙂

Date Night!

I must say the bike race was one of the highlights of my first summer in Xining! Right outside of our apartment complex the streets were blocked off for several hours as people lined the police tape waiting for the whoosh! as the bikers would pass us on each lap.  It was a great experience and I feel very lucky my first summer here, when I don’t even know how to get around that well, that the biggest event of the summer was on my street!  Go here and here to read more and see a lot of great pictures on Dan’s blog.
