One thing I (usually) love about China is the unpredictability of life. Sometimes it's frustrating, such as suddenly being told on Monday afternoon that JD was not welcome back at school this week (because, it turned out, they felt last week's cough might still be infectious, despite him no longer having a cough and his doctor already having given him the all-clear). At other times it's an unexpected bonus, such as stumbling on a 30+ piece orchestra performing (for free) outside JD's playcentre this morning. Not being able to read the Chinese, I still have no idea why it was there, but very welcome (and very high quality) it was. When they struck up the "Can Can" theme I nearly ran up to the front to start high-kicking but, with JD on my shoulders, it might have proven a bit too dangerous!
