Hello Zeva!

Unfortunately, we will not be visiting China this year. We are very sad. Our daughter was working in Shanghai but had to come back to the U.S. so we will not be visiting her there.

If we decide to plan a trip to China in the future we will certainly contact you.

I hope you remain healthy!
