Tuesday Morning Surprise

I just got a surprise phone call from China! I was in the bathroom fishing an eyelash out of my eye when the phone rang; I heard it announce "out of area" from the other room, so I disregarded the call and let the machine pick up. What a surprise to hear Holli's voice!

One of my best friends has been in Beijing since November studying at a language institute there, and though she's been good at keeping in touch via email, it was great to hear her voice (even though she's sick). We talked for about an hour, at which point it was her bedtime (midnight)--plus, she has a job interview tomorrow--but she assured me that the rest of Tuesday turns out just fine. Ha!

This is her third year in the country (second in Beijing), and I'm really hoping that we will be able to find a way to visit her while she is there this time. Now that she has her own apartment (previously she had been living in student housing of sorts, while she was teaching), we would have a great "base camp" for explorations about the city--not to mention an awesome tourguide.

During our conversation (there was a lot of echo on the line), I tried hard to transcribe her address (we'll see how well my pinyin is understood), so this week I will attempt to mail off her Christmas present. And maybe it will get there in time for the Chinese New Year.
