Tuesday was a free day, didn’t do anything and just hung out with Nate.
Wednesday I had class and Ted, Janet, Ross, and Boni sat in on the class. After the class I had lunch with some of my students from last year. Ted, Emma, and Stella were all students from classes I taught last year. Ted also asked me to speak full speed to him, he can understand English at full speed, but he and Emma talked Chinese full speed at lunch and I CAN NOT understand it. After lunch we got me a new bus pass I lost my other one. Then after that I came back to the apartment and took a nap until dinner time. I must have needed it and perhaps one today as I’m certain we will have an early bedtime. J
Carol and her friend accompanied me to get my business cards which are printed on double sided cards one side is about my English teaching and the other side is about LT&N as a music group. After getting the cards we all went to dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant in America we would call them Muslims here they are referred to as Nationals as they are a minority and are able to practice their religion without any problems. Most blogs will tell you that if you are uncertain about the health standards of an eating establishment go to a National restaurant where they adhere to the rules of their religion for keeping the kitchen clean.
Today I had lunch with Ellie, my Chinese friend who got her masters in the UK. On my way to campus to meet her I ran into Shirley and YEAH her car is fixed. Another car ran into hers while it was parked in the parking garage at her home. Shirley is also Kevin’s mom. Ellie and I had a nice lunch talking about many things. We dined in a coffee house near our house that also has live AMERICAN music like Rev Coffee House in Smyrna, GA. I left them my card and will stop back by some other time during the week. After that I went to see some of the teachers at the Law school on campus. For dinner we tried a new place on our street, not new as in just got there, new as in we had not eaten there before. The dish was spicy and had various noodles, mushrooms, cabbage, and meatballs in it. Good day but after I post I think I will relax and do some crocheting.
