Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

Thanksgiving. It's not hard to find a place to have Thanksgiving dinner in Beijing. But the prices are getting higher every year. The Bridge Cafe had one for 258 RMB, and Grandma's Kitchen was charging 198 RMB. Grandma's Kitchen told me that they could also deliver a fully cooked turkey--for 600 kuai. No thanks. So I decided to do the Cola Chicken thing again and fed 15-20 people for less than it would have cost me to do the Thanksgiving extravaganza at the Bridge. Ran out of chairs, but we sure didn't run out of food! Christmas is an international festival now, but Thanksgiving is uniquely American. Except for Christians in China. All the Three-Self churches celebrate American Thanksgiving.
