I attended a church service at one of the international churches with some of the teachers. It wasn't actually a service, mostly a lot of singing and the nativity story. It was unusual in that the regular Chinese public were allowed to attend. Normally they aren't allowed to go to foreign churches. I'm not entirely sure why...
Later the 4 of us went to dinner with some teachers from the high school, and a group of people they know (mostly students from Korea and India). We went to a famous dumpling restaurant, and were seated in a room with a very large table, with an equally large lazy susan. We ate multiple types of dumplings (my favourite was the egg/green pepper), both fried and steamed, plus rice, stir fried vegetables, mashed potatoes and a custard-y dessert. After eating for a few hours, our bill came to 36 kuai per person. That is, a large meal at a fancy restaurant cost me about $5.50.

And that was the end of 2010. This time last year I would have never imagined that I am where I am now, so I'm expecting 2011 to be an interesting year.
