H's dad and sis swung by for a wk's visit in BJ-land. It was the 1st time i met her sis, who lives in a small Ontario town. It was all pretty easy squeezing tour guide duties on top of our work scheds. In fact, it was pretty mellow. The 2 of them are pretty quiet, and not quite into the sketchy or wild side of BJ.
H's sis even guest spoke for my gr7 Sci class, so they could grill her about the pine beetle.
And we went on a tour of the Mutianyu section of the great wall, which was ok, but way too short due to a tour schedule and traffic.
But if we didn't get our fill, no prob: just 3 days after, H and i will go on an overnight trip to an even more distant G-wall spot. Just me, her, and 75 students and staff.
