Musing Mandarin is taking a holiday break as I’m in Los Angeles until after New Year’s (non-Chinese new year’s that is). It’s so wonderful seeing family and friends that I’ve been missing so much. Alas, Bernie is not here with us so the trip is bittersweet. Merry Christmas and Happy New Yeeeeeear to everyone. Be safe and be happy.
And remember, there is no smoking at the Great Wall, okay?!
