Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.


Christmas Season

Christmas season is coming to Shanghai….so they hope.

I understand that most retailers make as much from Thanksgiving to Christmas as they do the rest of the year.

Shanghai will host the 2010 World Expo.

China’s biggest city is expecting 70 million visitors who in turn will spend about 145 billion yuan, ($19.1 billion) = half the city’s retail sales in 2006.

Domestic tourists will make up 95% of the total number of

visitors and spend around 1,850 yuan each.

Foreign visitors will spend about 6,361 yuan each.

The Expo will run from May 1st – October 31st, 2010. 200 countries will participate making it the largest ever.

Hmm…2010. I wonder if I will still be alive.

Will you attend the 2010 World Expo?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
