Hong Kong Update!

Hi everyone! I've been having a lot of people asking about Taner and his trip to Hong Kong so I thought I'd post an update on how he was doing. One thing that's been really cool is we downloaded a program called Skype and I can talk to Taner through his friends computer! It's amazing! He's 16 hours ahead there so it's weird to think that 1:00 p.m. here is 5:00 a.m. there. His team played India and won on Tuesday, then they played Tailand last night and I haven't heard if they won yet.  Everyone predicts that they (America) will be playing Hong Kong in the championship game. Taner told me that it's kind of overwhelming how many fans, cameras, etc. are there, it's almost like a "mini olympics" and he said he was pretty nervous during the first game. He made a couple of 3's and played for a fair amount of time and it sounds like he's having the time of his life!! They've gone to a really nice dinner that served shark fin soup and many other chinese delicacies which Taner said I'd be proud of him..he tried it all! Anyways, it sounds like they're doing great over there and I can't wait to show you some pictures when he gets back. I'll keep you posted on how the tournament is going, we just can't wait for Tan to get back and enjoy the holidays with us! We miss you Tan and good luck!

Your comment about the food cracks me up! I bet that is what he was thinking the entire time he ate... what would Jenny think?!?
