My nephew Ezra J. Austin spent the last semester with us in Beilun. He went to school at AIAN every morning at 8 with Brian. He was a joy to have with us. It was hard for him, giving up the comforts of home to live in China with us. Of course, comforts exist in China (tv, video games, computers, etc.) just not in his auntie's house! He had his aunt and uncle reviewing homework and making him go out in the community - Chinese and International - to make friends and deal! He did it all and then some. Ezra made straight A's, lots of friends and learned a lot of Chinese. WTG EZZIE!! We LOVE YOU, MAN!
