Mandarin Mondays

We are currently living on the the other side of the world trying to learn the daunting language of Mandarin and the interesting culture here. Mandarin with its five tones and thousands of characters it is a challenge to say the least. Living in another country and culture presents a different set of challenges as we try to make sense of it all and figure out how to adapt.

Good thing we like challenges around here. So I am also going to challenge myself to write a little bit about something we've been learning about recently (either language or culture) once a week on Mandarin Mondays. We'll see how this goes as  real life can get in the way of the best of plans. I am hoping that is will help me process and organize what we have been learning, and maybe it will be of interest or use to others as well.
