Also, another crazy thing has been the lack of people here in Xi'an. Before the celebration we heard that the city would clear out. But honestly how could a city of 8 million people clear out? Well I still don't know the answer to that question, but the streets were empty for about three days and it was really strange. For the most part our lives haven't been negatively impacted by the fireworks at night which is nice. The girls have apparently become totally immune to noise because they haven't woken up once!
Life's good right now, this week some friends of ours came home so it's nice to have them around again. I will be updating the site soon so check it out.
with much love,
Matt, Heather, Sydney and little Aubrey
