We received a warm welcome from her family, relative, friends and villagers. So many people. They were getting together to celebrate grandpa’s birthday for one side and welcome us for the other side. Cathy, my beautiful Chinese wife, introduced me to her relatives, close friends and villagers. They smiled and kept speaking one of the most difficult language Chinese to me. Though I did not understand what they said but I could feel their friendliness to me. So I was smiling and telling them I was glad to meet them too in English. Cathy found out the language barrier and she kindly worked as my private interpreter. So we enjoyed talks with these simple people. Besides, I had learned a new game popular with Chinese. That is mahjong. Funny but it is a little difficult. Now I will often play this game with Cathy and her Chinese friends.
Besides the wonderful party and merry moments with her family, we also went to some tourist attraction well known to the world like Sanya and Lijiang. Beautiful landscape!! We had a good time there. My wife said it could be taken as the honey moon since we have been busy with our wedding and Cathy’s visa and did not have time for a honey moon. I’d say it is a very sweet honey moon. I feel grateful to God. And I do appreciate Chnlove, who gives the chance to meet Cathy.
This trip lasted more than a half month. Before we going back to the U.S.A., friends and villagers came over and had a big meal together. They gave us some special local products and told us feel free to come back. Finally we said goodbye and left this beautiful Chinese countryside with joy, happiness and love.
