Beijing Part 2: Day 13, Birthday Sidebar

Despite my absolute neglect of informing any of my Beijing friends that it was my birthday until today, luck was with me. I got three of my dorm mates to go to dinner, where we ran into my former classmate and several of his friends. We joined up, had a much bigger spread of food than either group otherwise would have, and they all kindly pitched in to pay my share.

Two of my fellow dorm 8 friends were very sweet to me and used the few hours of notice to buy me cards and small presents.

Just goes to show the enormous gulf that's built up over time between how much I emphasize my birthday versus how much other people emphasize everybody's birthday.
