Five years ago this week, my mom arrived in Beijing, along with a dozen or so friends to celebrate her 80th birthday. We spent a week seeing the sights, visiting friends, and of course eating wonderful Beijing food.
At the end of that week, my mom announced that it would be her last trip to China. My sister and I looked at each other and said “yeah, right!”
Tonight my mom is flying into Beijing to celebrate her 85th birthday. 15 others are flying over the next few days to join the celebration.
This will be her 3rd trip here since announcing her last trip in 2009.
Let the Birthday tour begin!
(No, this is NOT her car. It belongs to a friend of a friend…..)
Happy Birthday to your mom! Have a great celebration!
