Hi all

It was a surprise and my pleasure to meet our fellow forum member, Steven Li last evening!

I am in Beijing this week and learned from a mutual friend that Steven will be returning to China to visit his family in Shanghai and Tianjin during this period.

I communicated with Steven and we manage to meet up in Beijing and have dinner together with some other friends.

Thank you, Steven, for taking the trouble to make a trip to Beijing to meet me!

I will post some photos when I got back.


Richard

Dear Richard and Steven,

      Wonderful that you were able to meet, and in Beijing - the direction snuff bottle collectors pray in!  Roll Eyes Grin
A joke. I pray towards Jerusalem, but at least partially, about snuff bottles.  Wink
I'm in Italy tomorrow, G-D Willing, seeing Giovanni and family (and snuff bottles!), and also meeting Frank.
Best,
Joey

Hi all

My apology for the delay in posting the photo!

We were treated to a local delicacy in Beijing, the mutton hotpot which is the tall dark vessel on the right in the photo.

From left to right: Steven, our mutual friend and host, Mr Wang from Beijing and me.

Regards.


Richard

Dear Steven and Tom,
I too was thinking Steven different, although I can't say how. May be, despite knowing that you is Chinese, the association of your name with the Texas was inspiring a more Western looking.
It is nice to see you guys!
Frankly dear Tom I did thought in taking a picture of me and Joey in front of the vitrines of my collection, prior his visit. But then I forgot, sorry.
Best wishes dear Steven with your new rule here in the Forum. Whish it will not take too much time from you!
Kind regards
Giovanni

Glad you and Steven got to visit Richard.   David and I so enjoyed getting to know you better in LA last year.  Sad about George's decision but I do understand it.  I wish George only the best. We have made quite a few changes in the past 2 years and it is tough to do but you do have  peace once the decisions are made.    Steven is a wonderful choice for administrator.  Carry on Steven!

Dear Joey,

I bet that you had a wonderful time with Giovanni's as always, and Giovanni must have no time to take any photos,because you have countless stories to tell.Smiley

I know you have no phone, and no camera, but you have ipad which can take good photos. Wink

Cheers,
