Maite's last week...moving to China.

Da jia hao,

 

It's happening.  I am moving to China next week where I will begin teaching English in Jinan (Shandong Province).  Soooo, this will be my last week here at the Thursday meetup...and as the group organizer.  Being part of this group has been one of the most rewarding and enriching experiences of my life.  I have met so many friendly people and been exposed to so much that it is hard to fathom.  From casual dim sum outings to the wildest of "family friendly" entertainment, it's been fantastic.  I want to thank everyone for putting up with me over the past couple of years and even now as you propel me in to my new life.

 

All of this is especially funny for me because I became organizer only reluctantly and very begrudgingly. I remember asking myself "Do I really want to spend $12/month for this?  What a ripoff!  Why doesn't Jim do it."  But, I wanted to be able to be able to summon people to go to dim sum with, so here I am.  And here I go...my flight leaves Dec. 21st.

 

I will miss everybody.  Special thanks to Claire and Sherrie.  They complained so I made them organizers. That way they would have to do the work.  And they did.  And thank you to everyone else that would take me hours to name and detail all that they have done.
