Hard to say "goodbye."

We had a wonderful visit from my son Jeff and his family from the 13-18 of this month. Their two little girls (Josie - 7 and Amelia - 9) had a great time at the beach every day and especially enjoyed their dolphin encounter at Vallarta Adventures. Jeff and Kim are starting new teaching jobs in Wuhan, China soon - they have spent the last year there teaching English in a high school in Huangshi. We had a great time comparing our unique cultural experiences in China and Mexico. I think their cultural adjustment is a little steeper than ours, but the people of both countries are courteous and welcoming. It was such fun sharing some of our favorite places with them and it was so hard to say goodbye. They have made a two-year commitment, so I will be making a trip to China sometime in the next year.

Greetings from Portland.
Glad to see you are having fun.
Am flying down to Cabo San Lucas October 22-28 with my brother and sister. Maybe I'll drop by. I see you're just across the bay on this map.
Scott E. told me about your blog.
Good job.
