We just blew 3800 on new electric bicycles for Kurin and I. You should see Kurin's... it is spiffy. Nicer than mine, however, Kurin would not let me buy the same bike as him. We also got hemuts to match our bikes. I am sure we are part of only .5% of the population that wear them. ;)
We are not going to Beijing for the fall holiday, as according to everyone, ALL of China will be travelling at the same time. We may head to Hong Kong instead. I have heard that it is something to discover. I will keep you posted.
Lets see.... what else is new...? I have my first beginning of the year teacher's cold, and am suffering through it with dignity, or as much as I can muster. Of course every person I meet asks if it is H1V1... I have advised the school that maybe putting soap in the students and staff washrooms might help.
Still no apartment, still working on it, still unpacked suitcases by the front door.
We are going to go in to Shanghai this weekend for Kurin's birthday. It has been decided on Sushi and Go Carts... Maybe a movie. We will see.
I think that is it for news. I will add photos when I get home. I am going to Shanghai today to order books for the ESL department. Woo hoo! Finally... books. That is a huge step in the right direction.
Sorry I have not responded to your comments. I didn't check this until today. But thank you to everyone who is leaving comments. It helps me feel connected in some small way.
Love and miss you all.
Wendi and Kurin
PS: The 3800 we spent on our bikes is in RMB, NOT dollars. (you do the math) :)
