A Travellerspoint blog

Day twenty one, 9th October 2012, my bedroom, 7.30 pm

6. 30 am – wake up. The shower is broken so I’m stuck using the sink in the bathroom until it’s fixed.

7.30 am – Breakfast at Sunny’s. Dumpings, delicious (see pictures). I also had bread with strawberry jam. Sunny had an early appointment so I babysat Eric until his grandmother arrived.

8.45 am – back at mine. Tidied bedroom.

9 am – chinese lesson number three. Again similar to the previous two lessons. Rather difficult to explain via a blog what I actually learnt.

11 am – end of chinese class.

12 am – lunch with Lily at Sunny’s. As per usual it was rice with vegetables

1 am – After lunch Lily and I walked to the bus stop and caught the bus to a local supermarket. Lily was very useful in pointing out shops, through sitting on the bus it wasn’t really that easy to spot them. At the supermarket got food for breakfast. We walked around the shopping precint. I am one of those people who enjoys shopping but wants to get it over done with. I don’t like hanging around, waiting for other people. Plus I don’t know what size I am in China so buying clothes will have to wait for a later date.

2.30 pm – back from our excursion to the supermarket. I collapsed onto my bed and fell asleep.

3.30 pm – I got woken by Lily for another chinese lesson.

4.30 pm – End of chinese class

5 pm – lesson of the day. This class is for 4 – 5 year olds and is also much smaller, only five kids. Their parents don’t sit in with them this time. There are a couple of kids who don’t sit still for very long and I got rather good at telling them to sit up.

5.45 pm – class is over. It used to be 1 hour 45 but the parents said after a day at school it was far too long for the kids.

6 pm – dinner at Sunny’s

6.45 pm – back at mine

7.30 pm – write blog

8. 30 pm – bed. (I was very tired that day. Don’t judge)

I don't think anyone will judge you. It sounds an exhausting day. Geoff is in Kiev at a Russian language school. Having fun but he is tired too. Sheilah
