On a flight back to USA for a surprise holiday visit to my family, I have time to reflect on my time in china, and what the trip means to me from the standpoint of friendship and companionship.

China is full of interesting and exotic foods, as well as some fairly potent alcohol…. Which I was reintroduced to the day before recording this podcast.

Bringing my MRI scans to USA, I will have an opportunity to get some advice in English from professionals in the states, and I have even brought my Santa suit to introduce my chinese santa to my nieces.

Below are some video clips that we referenced in the podcast. Ill have more coming later.

This podcast was recorded on a flight from China to USA.

  • Just have seen your newest of videos, and I loved it…! And you really had Dad going he wanted to pluck that hat off your head so bad, when you walked in he was just so flabbergasted, and unsure of who you where…! It took Mom a few seconds as well, and that’s when she turned to your Dad saying it’s Matt…! You had really surprised them both for Christmas… A great beginning to what I am sure was one of the Merriest of Christmases…. As it surely seemed that they were definitely not expecting you… As I saw some of your home pictures on your timeline it looked as the whole family was in very great spirits having you home for Christmas… A wonderful feeling to have, I’m sure as I do not have any close ties to family on my father’s side, and my mother’s side have all passed many years ago…! Make Merry with family when ever you can, as it is very hard to bare latter on in life when they are all gone, as I have found out… I had a couple of visitors for Christmas, but that was all..! Christmas here for me is just another day now, and not as really grand as an occasion as when I was a child… But that’s life..! Glad that you had a wonderful Christmas, and may your New Year be just as Happy as well…!

    We all want to see you in that Santa suit Matt! Yep, after all that wonderful build-up, ya’ just gotta’ post a photo, or even better yet, some video of you giving out red jingle bells to kids while you are in the states! HO HO HO

  • Hay buddy…! Glad to hear you made the jump back across the puddle to the states for the Holidays, because I believe it to be important, to be with family for these times of year.. I would do the same if I had family I was close to… But I do not…! Wish you a Happy stay with your folks, and look forward to your next podcast ,or video…! If ever in Florida Look me up, as I am not far from many int. airports, or highways…! My door is always open to those I call friends, and those numbers are very small by my choice, because as I said in my last post to you most of them are assholes any way… But enjoy, and welcome home to the states…!
    Your Friend Zack
