It’s odd to see the nightly news when you wake up and the morning shows after returning home after a late night.

All of the events for the wedding are wonderful. There is a traditional Tea Ceremony at Candice’s house where she and Greg present tea to all of the elders in the family. It is very formal and a beautiful ceremony. It is not conducted in English but we eat great food and follow it as best we can.

A few days later, Candice and Greg do the equivalent of going to City Hall to get officially married and afterward we drive out to a beautiful lunch in the countryside.

The meal is amazing and the restaurant is located in a valley and on a lake. After the meal we stand around congratulating Greg and Candice and take in the view.

“Soak it up now,” someone says. “There isn’t this much fresh air in Beijing.”
