Beautiful setting at Yanoda

What a scene!
You have such a great attitude toward what might be, for me, massive overload. How great that you were able to enjoy the constant circus and also get out by yourselves on the beaches and mountain! Best wishes for another longish holiday, and Happy New Year!

Happy Year of the Ram, Tara!
It's always nice to hear from you. How have you been? Certain beaches were super crowded in Hainan but I knew they would be. We managed to get away from it all. It was sunny, it was warm, we ate well, we had ice cream and tons of fruit every day, I got to practice my Chinese every day and see Becky finally relax... Life was great in Hainan!
