There were not one but two expat gatherings on Thanksgiving Day. Both were mega-fun and I met a lot of new, cool people.
The first dinner was in the afternoon, at Mikey's place in Luoyang's Old Town. He had brought a turkey from Beijing, a real treat for those who still eat animal flesh.

The other Thanksgiving event was far different. Hosted by Chris and Wil at their apartment behind the chi-chi Maple Hotel (the best in Luoyang) it was held in the evening and was more partylike than a meal. But both were really fun.
