The Chinese students at our local college prepared a Chinese dinner tonight and invited their "foster" families to join them for the lunar new year. The girls and I went because we always like Chinese food and spending time with our Chinese friends..
Our friends Charlie, Cambria, and Catriona were there too, dressed in the beautiful silks that their Chinese friends had given them.
The food was simple, the comfort foods of the Chinese students.
We had rice and chicken, soup, dumplings,
Our foster student, Viola, was there. We hadn't seen her in a long time, so it was good to spend time with her again. She, and all the other students, were missing their families today. This meal together was a good way to feel a part of the festivities at home in China.
