Somewhere under all this is DJ. We all have to wear three layers on bottom and four on top with at least two on the head and cover the face plus gloves. Today, it will be -2F, and that is the warmest this week. The place we are moving to has a high today of 50F. It will be nice to be able to go outside without spending 30 minutes to get ready, making sure you have as little skin exposed to the burning cold.
We finally found a shop here that sells second hand clothes. They only had their winter clothes out of course, but we did find a flannel shirt and pants for DJ, as well as some bigger clothes for us. Deb got two new suits and I got some more warm things to wear when we go to Harbin.

Every Chinese restaurant I have ever been to in America was buffet. We have not seen a buffet in China since moving here until recently when a new restaurant opened not far from our apartment. It cost about $7 each which is about an average cost to go out and eat.
The first time we went, we were treated like VIP's and taken by hand and shown everything like we had never seen a buffet before.
They had both Northern and Southern Chinese dishes including some stations where they prepared food to order while you wait. They also had some western foods like pizza and french fries. You could also get small trays of shaved meat to cook at your table. Plus, there was a large variety of other things including desserts.
Most of the food was wonderful, while other things we will leave to the taste of the locals.
