Dinner at Sasha's

Another day, and Chinese and teaching class was followed by Tim going to the high school for teaching observations, and Sue staying back with the kids for a "home day".  Everyone has all been a bit tired from all of our going lately, so Sue and the kids had a much needed afternoon rest.  They did go to the student store, and Peter and Sophie found a secret path through the trees and the rocks.

Tim got home at 5:20 and we jumped into a cab at 5:30 for dinner with the rest of the gang at Sasha's, an old mansion that used to be owned by the prominent Soong family.

We sat in traffic at rush hour in our waiting for our dinner.

Sasha's has a wonderful outdoor patio that we sat at and had dinner.  It's a big expatriate place, only English spoken here!

After a long evening of visiting it was time to go back to our rooms.  here are Tim, Peter, (and Jack's arm) hailing a cab.  In China you always hail a cab with your hand palm down.  Otherwise it means you may be hailing something (or someone) more illicit!

Woohoo! I loved the pictures of the kids, hadn't seen anything but a sleeping Sophie in a long long time! Isn't Shanghai beautiful at night??? Keep up the great work! Tim, you have made my mother's day! She loves getting a print out of your blog every day in the mail. Toni Knaus had asked for your blog address too...she is keeping up with your adventures! Love mom
