Update …Lisa in China

Isn‘t this an adorable picture? The children look like twins but are actually not even related. Their parents are teachers in the same school where Lisa and her husband Glen teach in the city of Pinghu, China.

They have been in China for over 6 months now and must really enjoy it since they will be returning for another year after a well deserved vacation back to the States this summer. I can’t wait to see Lisa then !

She sent me two more pictures and I am pleased to share them with you. The first is of the school campus … a lovely shot taken from their apartment window in late afternoon, showing the canal and the weeping willows.


And here is one of their favorite places in Pinghu …one of the older neighborhoods that they hope will not be demolished like so many others in China, being replaced by high rise apartment buildings. Lisa writes about this area … “I really feel like I am stepping back in time with I walk through the narrow alleyways of this area.”

It would really be a shame to lose centuries of culture for a high rise.
How lucky that they are able to immerse themselves so thoroughly into another world most of us can only imagine.

The campus looks very inviting and serene.

It does seem like time travel to wander down thru 'old" sections of cities in other countries. A friend of mine just got his degree from a University that was founded in 1453. (Istanbul)
There are many tiny windy alley ways where one tiny car might be able to pass thru, or maybe 2 donkeys could pass each other, fascinating, places, but I don't think I would want to live on that street. A visit is good!
