Everyone is home again. Amanda arrived on the 22nd, having driven cross country with the help of Adam, a friend from Duluth. Brittany, John and Crystal arrived on the 23rd from Utah and Colorado. After a hearty bean soup we all settled down to a friendly game of Mah Jong. We learned how to play it in China, and some of us needed a refresher course. We had a spot of Chinese herbal tea to get us in the spirit. We took turns winning, which made everyone happy!
