Xi'an...
Here I come! I'm leaving for Xi'an (西安) for a week during the National Holiday. I'll be leaving the following Saturday, which is the Moon Festival. The festival is celebrated on August 15th of the lunar calendar, so the date on the western calendar changes every year. Normally the festival falls in September, but this year there's a double 7th lunar month so it's in October.

Is the National Holiday a week long for everyone? Hope you have a great trip.

In theory, and by law, it's a week long. However my school is special and they only get 3 days off. The advantage of being a foreign expert is they give me a week off as required by law :)
