Goodbye parties

CHINA | Friday, 20 June 2008 | Views [733]

It began yesterday. Case invited a few friends for martinis at a pretty fancy bar in Beijing. It was his last Thursday in Beijing, and he wanted to take advantage of the two for one special. The goodbye lasted as long as four martinis, and led to a very difficult morning on Friday.

Today, Stacey had a goodbye dinner/drinks get-together at several hot spots in Beijing. It lasted as long as, like, six pizzas, a mojito, and several new friends.

Suddenly, Beijing has become a spinning top, spreading its current foreign residents across the globe. Everyone is moving on to better or different things. Everyone wants to say goodbye in style.

My wallet is hurting as much as my heart.

Tomorrow, I'll add another one to my list.  This one for me.  My co-workers and I are going out to eat as a last dinner before I leave Beijing University of Technology.
