HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Had only two lessons this morning, then in the afternoon we finally moved into our apartment!
It's pretty nice - a big spacious living room with an enormous TV, a piano & 4 fish! Unfortunately no sofa, which is gonna be a bit annoying when we want to veg out in front of the TV.
We get our own room each, both with a double bed, as well as decent sized dining room and some funky coloured lights! The bathroom's a bit disappointing, but at least it's a Western-style toilet, and the kitchen... well me and Sarah have decided to leave the door shut, and not really mention it...
Basically the oven is caked in grease, and isn't really an oven.. more like two hobs! The rest of the kitchen consists of a very grotty sink, a few shelves and a fridge.... and the whole room smells like a cross between dirty fish tanks and mushrooms!
For dinner we went to Big Pizza to celebrate that we could finally properly unpack!
