The last day at DUT!

We had our presentations ceremony this morning. Each class made a PowerPoint and talked about their experience. Our classes was just lots and lots of photos - a picture says a thousand words afterall. Matt, Jack and I presented with Lil doing her best to screw up the PowerPoint operation! We were then all presented with our certificates and marks from our classes. It was a really nice touch and I am very happy to have a momento to show what we have learnt! We then took loads of photos and exchanged email addresses before going to a big lunch togethe

As it was Simons birthday we all said happy birthday in various languages. The teachers got him the traditional long noodle that you have to eat in one go to have a long life! We then had some more photos before heading back to rooms to pack. We left DUT at 6.30pm and headed to the airport, where (yes you guessed it) the flight was delayed. It didn't matter too much as I hung out with Nick, who had come to airport to travel home, and watched the Olympics.

We arrived at Bejing at 12.30, an hour late. The problem with our delay was that Ed was supposed to be on a flight back to England at 1.30am! Too help I rushed him to the airline desk but they just ignored us until Hongbo kicked up a fuss! Hongbo then took Ed to the bus to get to his terminal so I had to collect his bag for him. Luckily I managed to catch the bus with his bag just before it left. Unfortuantley Ed still missed his flight but got one the next morning. We arrived at our hostel at 1.30ish and checked in. It's a great place, the 365 hostel, with a bar as a lobby and the 10 bed room was very comfortable with real mattresses!!
