We FINALLY made it over to Shunyi (an American neighborhood northeast of Beijing) to visit our friends from Manassas, VA, the As. They moved to Beijing this summer as well. They invited us over on Sunday, Dec. 21. We went to their house straight from church which made the train ride there shorter. It took about two hours to get home. We had a great time, ate yummy food, and the kids loved getting to see their friends again.
