Since arriving in Xiamen we have had every virus within a 100 mile radius; sometimes more than one at a time, which doesn’t seem fair, but hey: it’s not a democracy. Currently, Jonah and Frankie are well enough to be banished to a nearby basketball court, but Ivan is in one bed and Chris is in the other, and I am on my second set of clothes today (don’t ask) as I prepare to teach my first class. That said, we’ve met some terrific people and can’t wait to explore Xiamen (temple, beach, expat bar) when we are on two, or two-ish, feet again.
Health update, a week later: we are improving, though we (Angela, Chris, Ivan) still have “China Lung.” The younger kids seem more robust.
