First Guests in Hong Kong or A Very Hong Kong Thanksgiving

     Since arriving in August Marisa and I have been looking forward to seeing familiar faces in our new home.  Fortunately we didn't have to wait too long, as two of our friends from Frankfurt, Andy and Amy, were touring through southeast Asia and were able to pass through Hong Kong on their way home.  We were double fortunate too since they happened to stay with us through the Thanksgiving holiday.  We've had a history of having epic American meals with these two, so we were really excited to have them - not to mention we'd also just recently finished furnishing our guest room so it was ready to host.

 Andy and Amy rolled up looking like they'd been sitting on Thai beaches for two months, which isn't too far from the truth.




While we didn't exactly pull off a traditional turkey, but we did have a roasted chicken with head, fee, claws and all.  Couple that with some mashed potatoes, green beans and cranberry sauce and you have our first Thanksgiving in Hong Kong.

     Relationships are really the only thing that matters in life and we were blessed by this visit.  We were able to catch up on life since leaving Frankfurt with people that know us and understand what we left.  It was really great hearing about their travels in Asia and their future plans.  We had an excellent meal, shared what we were thankful for, played board games and had lots of laughs.  You could say it was all good for the soul.
