So I've been here over a week now, can you believe!?
I'm feeling much more settled and have met some lovely other young peeps who work here! They're from the US and have all studied and speak Chinese! Makes ordering food and getting around SO much easier! They've shown me around lots and are really friendly - I was so relieved when I met them!
Work load looks like it's going to be pretty light and I have a couple of days off a week, so I'll really get to explore the city properly which is great!
Since the last time I posted an entry I have been into the city centre a few times and have seen quite a few other Westerners - they do exist here! So I'm not a complete alien! Food here just continues to get more and more delicious, though I had a fried and flattened chicken's head on my plate the other day - apparently it's a sign of honour! Hmm..not sure it'd go down well in our restaurants! Alot of restaurants have cages and fish tanks infront of them with all sorts of fish, turtles, chickens and bunny rabbits!! You can literally choose your dinner...! I'm gonna have a strong stomach by the end of my stay...!
Hope you're all doing goood! Keep in touch..you can email me on here or my email add is [email protected]
