In my last post I said D had been busy with work "stuff". Not your ordinary work "stuff" mind you, but a twelve day jaunt to China to train new employees at a new company office and plant. He left me behind at the homefront and though I would have loved to go along, I didn't relish the thought of days alone in a hotel room in a strange country. Maybe next time though!
The streets of Shanghai were just as busy and crowded in the middle of the night as they were during the daylight hours.
He and two co-workers were able to take a weekend jaunt to Bejing and take in some of the tourist sights.
He did, in fact, climb the Great Wall ! Though it was hot and humid, they managed to cover at least a couple of miles of the wall. The entire week the skies were overcast and hazy so photos didn't turn out as good as he'd hoped. Here's the proof that he was there!
They were also able to go to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Security was stepped up in Beijing as they prepared for their 60th Anniversary and decorations were being put in place for the coming celebration.
Company employees gathered for a group photo.
The new office building and production facility under construction.
He brought home lots of goodies including many of these moon cakes and lots of tea.
Have a great week!
