Special visitor from Netherlands

OMNG22I’ve got a special vistior from the Netherlands over this week. Giel Talsma is a former neighbor of mine and we’ve known each other for over ten years. I ran into him when I was in Holland during the summer and I invited him to China, he was excited immediately. OMNG1After picking him up at the Pudong airport on a early Saturday, we have had a busy schedule. Besides doing groceries at the local market, we have been to a black-market to buy clothes. In the evening, we went to a Chinese hotpot place with Korean, Australian and Japanese friends. First, Giel was a bit intrigued by the fact that there was a sheep-spine being served, but he quickly adapted to the Chinese kitchen.
