happy birthday, grandma

In other news, happy birthday to my Puo Puo (grandma on mom's side). She turned 90 last weekend and is one of my personal heroes. Puo lived through the brutal Japanese invasion of China and the violent Communist revolution that followed. She then rebuilt a life with my grandpa in Taiwan. Only two years ago, at age 88, she climbed to the top of Lu Mountain (LuShan) on foot. At the summit, a middle-aged man asked to take a photo with her because he had never seen a woman at her age scale a mountain before. She taught me my multiplication tables and how to spell in English (despite not knowing English herself). Here's the two of us on her bday. Love you, Puo!
