Well this will be almost two weeks here goes.
On Tuesday the 12 I did nothing, it was my day off. I was a lazy girl just practiced and did nothing else…it was GLORIOUS!
Wednesday the 13th found me walking around Manhattan in the CBD area taking pictures before I taught the last lesson with Victoria. I didn’t know it was the last lesson but it turned out that way. She was baking so part of our English was to talk about baking. Something I miss from America.
Thursday was another teaching day as was Friday. My Friday student was in the CBD area and his lesson is in the morning. This gave me a chance to see RUSH HOUR in Zhengzhou. I usually have a project I am working on while on the bus and miss the traffic, but on this day I opted to check out my surroundings. Rush hour hear looks like Rush hour in Atlanta, GA or Washington DC. I’m also certain that any major city in America would look the same. A person going to work is the same everywhere.
Saturday and Sunday the weekend! As always since January; I had my piano lesson on Saturday and with a student started a Bible Study on Sunday. I also got up early both days to try eating a traditional Chinese breakfast. Very tasty with soya-bean milk doujiang, 豆浆 and a leek, and egg pancake that has several names. Xian bing 馅饼，and cai he采合 are two of the names I’ve been told.
Monday was Ethan’s lesson in the morning and then lunch with a friend. I learned that I am a one beer limit girl. Life is real special with two beers in me…LOL!
Tuesday I had lunch with a new friend and some old friends.
Wednesday sadly I was home sick but my wifi did get fixed so now I can surf on my phone at home without huge charges. My student friend Ted and I had dinner together.
That brings us to today which has been full of experiences already. In a few hours I will teach so this morning I went to get some materials printed for today and tomorrow. I totally forgot that my curly hair would make me stand out. (like that is the ONLY thing that makes me stick out…hehe) anyway several people had to come up and inspect my hair so I learned how the sentence ‘my hair is naturally curly’ looks in Chinese. Once again, thank heavens for my cell phone translator! I cooked lunch for me and I thought of my friend Nena who gave me her rice cooker when she went back to America. I’m looking forward to dinner tonight. Myrna another foreign teacher and I are going out.
