During Tuesday evening’s Mah Jongg game, the end of the wall was fast approaching. We had already completed three wall games this particular evening and we had five such games last week!

I just returned from a trip to China and Tibet. Although, I visited some remarkable sites like The Great Wall and Potala Palace, what fascinated me was how engaged the Chinese people were in leisure activities.
