Two in Tow


Our plans after the Expo were for Sianna and I to return to JiuJiang while Hubs and Schäfer continued to host the engineers on one additional hydro power excursion. With all of Hubs travels, Schäfer has been missing his Papa so much. We decided that since this trip only involved hosting, Schäfer was old

Shanghai World Expo 2010

05.26 – 05.27.10

This summer, we hosted a group of engineer students from America. During their stay, they expressed an interest in riding the Maglev train in Shanghai.

Ying Cai Kindergarten Parent’s Day


When the teacher told me Friday was Parent’s Day, I wasn’t too concerned. We’ve been pretty happy with Ying Cai Kindergarten. There have been some issues, but no preschool is perfect. So, I attended Parent’s Day in my usual relaxed mode – Sianna in tow.

The first thing I noticed was that
