Some photos from the past month - Part 1

Last month Randy, a fellow teacher, returned to his native Canada. We bade him adieu...even though he was going back to Saskatchewan, not Québec :-)

The gang at the "after party" at the nearby park.

Yes, I was there too.

On Easter Sunday, Chyo and I took a day trip to 三義 Sanyi with his friend Stuart, who was visiting from Hong Kong. Sanyi is known for its woodcarving industry, as well as 勝興火車站 Shengxing Huochezhan, an historic train station.
