Number Our Days

So teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12

New Year’s in the Village

Leave a comment

Besides our city celebrations, we also spent some time out in the countryside welcoming the New Year. As I said before, Chinese New Year is not a one-day event, but rather a festival that lasts for 15 days. This means that the feasting goes on and on, giving us great freedom in when we are able to join folks for meals and events. In this case, we came on the 3rd day of the New Year, and it turned out to be really low key and all-around enjoyable ( NO firecrackers!!)

The day was beautiful – signs of spring all over – so we enjoyed the outdoors with a little family walk while the food was being prepared. Of course, no village trip is complete without seeing and touching all the water buffalos, who were also enjoying the time off.

Our friend grilled hot dogs, beef, and chicken while his wife stir-fried a huge table of veggies and meat. As usual, it was delicious! For dessert there was fresh sugar cane!
