A highlight of the trip was Brad and Sarah’s wedding! They held a big reception, buffet and dance in Brad’s parents’ huge machine shed. It was a lot of fun! (As you can see from the above photo) I was their photographer. All photos can be seen here.
Jon was talking to someone who was shocked to hear he was from Nisland. (Local town, population about 150.) She said he was the last person at the reception that she thought would be from there. I guess it must be his dashing good looks, tailored cashmere coat and scarf that makes him look so urban? When she found out he lived in China, she said, “Oh, I’m sorry.”
Sorry for what? Getting out of the state to see the world a bit? I’m sorry for people that don’t realize that there is something outside of their own little bubble.
