Thanksgiving, China Style

Hello hello! So Thursday was, of course, Thanksgiving! Granted it was about 13 hours ahead of the real Thanksgiving, but no less thanks were given :) We had a Flagship orphan's Thanksgiving potluck at Vivian's house, and it was a wonderful success! Of course there wasn't a turkey (the import store had some, but they were at cheapest 50 dollars American, no thanks!) but Vivian made a roast chicken in the toaster oven (I'm so happy that when everyone leaves for their internship I get that toaster oven!!) and instead of pumpkin pie we had assorted cakes and cookies. It was a great mix of traditional Thanksgiving food (I made mashed potatoes and even found some sour cream!) and Chinese food. There were 20-30 of us and while it was a little cramped it was full of life and warm feelings :)

At one point a gas gauge woman came to the door, but when she looked in and saw all of us foreigners, she promptly decided to come back later, I suppose we surprised her!

These are the only two pictures I have so far, more to come once others post theirs. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
