Dinner with a Suzhou Reader

I invited Michael Jiang of Blog In The Wall to join us for dinner. Michael is one of my readers from Suzhou. I don’t know how many readers I have in Suzhou but Michael was the only one who emailed me asking for a meet up. We went to a restaurant near my hotel and had a traditional Chinese dinner.

Meeting readers is something I never get tired of. One of the reasons I started this blog was to meet new people. The blog has allowed me to create many new friendships, many of them will last a lifetime. While you maybe able to put a price on the money this blog makes, you can’t put a price on the friendships it has created. Friendship is priceless.

I would have liked to take Michael out to a bar or club after dinner. However, China is in three days of mourning for the victims of the earthquake. All bars and clubs are closed. It was great to meet up with Michael. I hope to meet more readers as I continue on to Taiwan.
