My wife informs me, via mobile phone, that Tony does not like it in Beixing. He would rather be outside than stay in the Grandparents' house. There is a good chance that Tony and Jenny will return to Wuxi tomorrow.
I suspect that Tony misses the comforts of home. There isn't any couch so comfy in Beixing as there is in Casa K where Tony can be seen lounging in the photo above.
My boy will not be allowed to become a couch potato! When he is mature enough, he will have to earn respites, like the one in the photo above, the honest way through solid, sustained effort.
China is developing a strategic metals stockpile. A wise decision on their part.
I watched episode 2 of season 4 of the Wire last night. I then watched part of Renoir's Grand Illusion. It is funny to see a move where English is a foreign language and the anglos are off to the side. In Grand Illusion, they sing "It is a long way to Tipperary" over and over again.
