Yesterday afternoon I got an exciting call — my friend Jessie, who I got to know during my years in Changchun, was in Tianjin on business! Since it was Halloween and we were expecting trick-or-treaters, Jessie and I stayed in our apartment, ate pizza, passed out candy, and just talked and talked and talked. It was wonderful to catch up with this dear friend who I haven’t seen in such a long time. Thanks, Jessie, for finding me in Tianjin!!! Below is a picture of Jessie and me, of Teresa and Laura as a princess and fairy, Philip the pumpkin, and Jessie trying her hand at passing out candy.
