In September Steve traveled to Tianjin, China, to visit his old student Hongyu Guo. It was great to see him and also to see his wife Yinhua and their daughter Serena. Shanze Li, who spent time in Steve’s lab in Houston as a visiting graduate student, also joined us for lunch one day from Beijing. Near Tianjin is the Qilihai wetland, a large Phragmites wetland that is also a location of extensive aquaculture of the famous mitten crabs, which we sampled at a memorable lunch that also included grasshoppers, beetles, shrimp and other delicacies.
