Our Year in China

How's the food
here? - "Hi all!
It's been a while since my last post. I do apologise, I've been busy with my students as they prepare for their exams. Lots of things have happened since my last update, our Waiban Judy got engaged, then very shortly after got married. One of our Chinese teachers announced she is having a baby, Sharon and Larry visited from Scotland and then my parents came!"

Trips, a Show, and 38°C Weather - "This coming Thursday the temperature is supposed to go up to 38°C in Beijing, and as a Scotswoman I am not built for this kind of heat. As we edge into summer I have resorted to bringing a "ice cushion" (it's basically a giant ice pack, but it has cute penguins on it) to class to keep me cool, and recently purchased a fan attachment that plugs into my phone. Yes, I am that weak. Thankfully I have plenty going on to keep my mind off the scorching heat."
