This photograph shows Jonny setting off on the first leg of his journey, last August.
He came home for four weeks holiday - and how that time has flown by, in a flurry of getting some of the heavy jobs done around this place.
We have him home for just a few more days, then he will return to Shaghai. Almost immediately upon his return he'll be teaching children at a summer camp, then life will return to normal as he resumes work at a university.
We have all 'met' her via QQ calls...and yes, she is as lovely as she looks. Mingming is 25 years old, a strong, stubbornly independent woman. Not only is she gorgeous, she's vivacious, intelligent and speaks much better English than she gives herself credit for. I should add that her English is self-taught, mainly from books!
All I know is that she makes my boy happy.
That's all that matters to me.
