A nice wee self esteem boost from the Chinese Christian Union Church in Chicago's Chinatown. After more meetings this morning, we headed back into Chicago, the other two Brits headed home and I went to Chinatown with a former colleague, who is now based just outside Chicago, but her family roots are in Chinatown. Her grandfather features on one of the city's brown **honorary** street signs for his role in developing Chinatown. Then it was off to Wheaton to stay with an old friend from my days in Russia, whom I'd not seen in 3 years, when she visited Scotland. It's going to be a fun weekend!
