I had a lovely evening yesterday with a couple of teachers from my school (one of whom, Peter, with his wife Monique, started while I was away) and some of their friends. It's always nice to meet new foreigners in town, as I tend to mix with Chinese more these days. It was a very multicultural affair with folk from England, USA, Holland, Greece and Australia. We met in Peter and Monique's 13th floor flat, with beautiful views over Kunming [see photo].
This was one of their semi-regular Scrabble get-togethers. We had just enough people for two simultaneous boards and there was a mixture of experts and newcomers to the game. It was a laughter-filled evening, especially when a sudden run of "less than wholesome" words appeared on the two boards (bum, wog, porn, hun, poke, tit, etc)! And modesty forbids me from mentioning the overall winner.
