Two of my dear friends got married today. I met her when she was a university freshman back in 2001. After she graduated, she started working in a travel agency about the same time as he did. Now they own their own travel business. They were married at the Beijing Gangwashi Christian Church, where they both attend. Despite the near 90% humidity and an afternoon deluge, it was a wonderful day!

The banner that greeted us at the entrance to the banquet hall.
You may be wondering about the kiss. It didn’t happen. The pastor didn’t even give them the option. As we say in China, ‘what a pity!’
