…bookclub at lise’s and dawn’s pick from march. another great evening. I didn’t get a picture of lise in her oriental garb – even the food had a chinese flair (and it was all very good).
the discussion was interesting – we were pretty much all in agreement that living here now is much better than china in the 1700’s. bound feet are kind of creepy. there are similarities between the chinese religion (you break into three parts when you die) and christianity (father, son and holy ghost). we loved the idea of meeting up with our mothers in the afterlife and getting to know them as adults.
and we had a lot of fun with the fortune cookies!
