~~新家~~

Last weekend we helped move Silvia into her new apartment. Lots of overstuffed bags later and we're almost done. When you move you realize how much clothing and socks you have.


Her neighborhood has a great open air market, absolutely huge and very hidden in the hutong alleyways. Every vegetable you can think of as well as household goods like brooms, notebooks and blankets. Lots of staring too, which is always plentiful and free in China.


搬家。Moving.

Silvia's 平房 (traditional style apartment) Kitchen and bathroom to the right, and one giant room with a comfy bed.

Unpacking.


This is the French designed China National Opera House or "the egg." It's now open for public gawking.

A mall at 西单。 Lots of cheap junk in this area with fancy brands off on another street. We're naturally in the cheap junk area.

that "egg" opera house looks like the (also french) olympic stadium design; i mean the egg-likeness...

besides those windows in silvia's room,are there other openings (like a balcony or what not..)?

as usual you all look good, despite carrying the flu for over two weeks!

can't wait to see you...amazingness is RIGHT ON!

kisses,

Dear One,

I am here in Shanxi provence, busily supervising the construction of coal mine pallets.
Our company continues to prosper. Where are you?
Where have you been?
Who is this woman you are writing about?
Why have you aquired this "big head" without consulting me?
When will you stop hanging out with the boys?
I expect more consideration from my future husband.
