Goings and cummings (no pun intended)

A few weeks ago, at a post-pickup dinner, we discussed, on the record, the life and legacy of Marc Hiller, who came to us from Indonesia and, after too short a stay, is leaving us for the false comforts of the U.S. On Friday some of us had a few drinks with him at Great Leap Brewery, and Saturday we bid our final adieus. We wish him all the best.

Meanwhile, upon the ashes of death rises new life in the form of Lauren Hostetter Reed, who we made a farewell video for 13 months ago thinking she would be gone forever. Alas, forever has a different meaning in this oasis called Beijing, and so it is that two weeks she made her triumphant return. We welcome you back.
