A New Year

Happy 2011! Don't let the sunny grasslands and blue skies fool you -- it's cold (-25 Celcius) in Inner Mongolia.
So we bundled up and went sliding; Diane's on the tow rope on her way up the hill of artificial snow.
At the top with one of our teaching colleagues, Zhang Hui Feng (aka Hilary).
And down we go! Skiers are being towed up the other side of the hill.
Tired but happy, we enjoyed a wonderful New Year's Day dinner. We can now literally say, "Einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr" -- Wishing you a good slide into the New Year!
