After the class lesson on Saturday, the students took me to a small festival gathering. It's based around the Xiamen Mooncake Gambling tradition where members gathered around a table roll dice for a chance at winning prizes. The atmosphere was wonderful and it was easy to see how a shared experience of studying together had made them life long friends. There were many toasts and speeches throughout the night which didn't end after the dinner was eaten ... it was time to sing! Why not, alcohol improves ones singing voice after all, or so I was told. Moving on to the karaoke bar we sang to western and eastern music well into the night ... or was it the morning! Such a great experience to share with the students.
