What a Month

July has come and gone in what seemed like the blink of an eye. I knew it would.

Niko's visit was definitely action packed: attending Dirk & Sheila's wedding in the bamboo forest of Moganshan ... touring Tibet from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp ... seeing the historic sites around Beijing. In between was peppered with nights of karaoke, river cruises, steamed dumplings and Filipino cover bands.

Now that he has left, its time to get back into the swing of the Shanghai routine and catch up on everything that has been neglected for the past 30 days (including my writing).

Zai jian, Niko ... you will be missed around here!
