Our family is making another run for the border this week. We’ll be traveling by rented car driven by my handsome husband. Our improvement to our travel this time will be the addition of two (yes, two!) car seats for our little ones. Not having to hold a child for six hours may mean I will get to take a photo or pay attention to some of the things are passing.
This also means we won’t be able to host the EXPAT EXCHANGE this week. The Phoenix will be happy to have you, but we won’t be there. See you next week.
And Americans, don’t forget that the Embassy is hosting a town hall meeting on Wednesday.
This came to us via some other Americans in the city, but we were asked to share it.
What: Town Hall for U.S. Citizens in Hohhot, Tea/Coffee/Water will be provided
When: Wednesday, March 12 from 6:30-8:00 pm
Where: Club Lounge Meeting Room, 26th Floor, Sheraton Hohhot Hotel
Why: To explain services and resources provided by U.S. Embassy to
U.S. citizens, discuss services available to and general life for U.S.
citizens in Hohhot, and identify a new warden, the main Embassy POC in
I need your feedback! If you plan to be at the EXPAT EXCHANGE tomorrow please text 18747977365 or email email@example.com. We’ll meet in the evening at 6:30.
Here’s where your feedback comes in. How often should we have these events? I feel like weekly is too frequent for everyone to attend, but once a month seems like too little. Another option is every other week, which seems too hard for everyone to keep track of. So, please let us know your thoughts about how often you think we should gather.
The Air China Phoenix Hotel’s Sunshine Coffee House has some great deals for Women’s Day. If you’re a woman, check these out to save some money! Actually, I think the last one applies to men too:
- March 1-9, any woman who makes a reservation in advance gets a 35% discount.
- If your birthday is also in March, you can eat half price!
- If you follow the Phoenix’s wei xin/wechat before the 9th, you get a coupon to enjoy the buffet for 99 RMB! (nmguohang)

我今天要感谢的是在中国买票的时候如果等到最后一分钟价格没变。 我们今天买了明天去北京的火车票。 价格每天一样。 我们上月也在要出发的那天安排司机去北京。 去年九月分的时候也在两天内安排了去香港的飞机票和住的地方也没经历麻烦。
在美国这样的事情大多数的时候是不可能的。 等到快要走的时候票肯定比提前买的贵。 在我们那里安排旅程肯定要提前安排或者你会碰到很多困难。

Unfortunately, I’m not nearly cool enough to have been the one to figure out the tip or even cool enough to have written the post. I can however, link to it here and hope it helps you.
