With Eric returning after over 20 months in China, our family went out to the airport to meet him. His friends were there before us.
When Eric showed came through the international arrivals doors, our sons jumped over the divider in a rush to greet him.
After Eric’s long flight, he had a few words with his friends and made appointments to see them later in the week.
To celebrate, we knew our sons would enjoy a good dinner. Our usual preferences is for Asian buffets, but since Eric hasn’t had good western food in a long time, he opted for Jerusalem Restaurant.
The selection of meats, stews and fish was broad. Returning from a third world country, fresh salads and uncooked vegetables were a change.
Everyone made multiple trips for a little taste of variety of foods.
At home, Eric unpacked some clothes as gifts. The cartons shipped on the slow boat from China were expected some weeks later.
While Eric had rearranged the bedroom furniture while Adam was away in China, he found the arrangement much the same as when he left. He would eventually go on a redecorating spree.
