From massages to pickpockets, from karaoke to food poisoning, the past 7-day trip through Guangxi province had almost everything that you hear about in a stereotypical China trip.
On the bus for 10 hours until we reached Nangning. Slept not enough. Went to the nightmarket, and SHIRLEY HAD HER CAMERA STOLEN. How it happened: Shirley and friend were eating seafood and street food. Shirley takes picture of friend and self with camera. Shirley puts camera in pocket because hands have food in them. Literally as Shirley walks away from the stall she feels her pockets and realizes camera is GONE.
[Sidenote: I don't update my blog for a while, and I come back to find it HACKED. Thanks a lot, internet. ]
The past three weeks have gone by incredibly fast. Between classes and night activities and programming for websites and shopping combined with the terrible internet connection, there hasn’t been much time for blogging. Tomorrow we are heading out to new destinations — mainly, Beihai, a city in South China famous for, according to Wikipedia, sandworms(?!).
Said goodbye to my kids today, with much regret. I will miss my girls.
Look how cute they are!
These days have been super busy, teaching from 9-12 in the morning, 2-4 in the afternoon, then 7-9 playing with the kids at night, with some time in between for meals. Hardly anything like in Greece, when I had most of the day free.
