Congratulations on signing contracts for next year - this area sounds lovely and the pictures are beautiful. Glad you could be close to another large city to use as your take off spot for traveling - It seems that being close to Hong Kong has worked out nicely for you this year. Love the fact that you are dropping that daily commute time to the school - your mom says it will be a little colder in this locale - but maybe you're ready to give up the heat and humidity. We had a very nice shower for Kayla yesterday. Can't wait to see you guys in July and at the wedding in August. Can you believe Alyssa and Caitlin are college graduates !!!! Alyssa was official on May 15th and Caitlin will get her diploma this Sunday - take care and safe travels - we'll see you soon!

mixed emotions
Sorry to hear about Shenzhen Middle School...oh well, that might have been more like teaching in the US....35 lessons a week is not your style of teaching!!!!!! Glad you are checking out the college town and living quarters....Enjoy your last few weeks with your friends and students!!!!!

Fire trucks!
Wow! We didn't get firetrucks! And our "ambulance" was one of the teacher's cars with a paper red cross taped to the window. Yours was certainly cooler.

It's your birthday!
I think you're a day ahead so you would have already celebrated your birthday or maybe you're a day behind - who knows. Love the lesson on Nowism - hope you're having a great time on your trip to Taiwan - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

You guys should get a Chinese baby before you come home. Maybe that kid in the picture would like California.

catch up
Well, it looks like no job in Shanghaui with that company! Isn't that crazy about the teachers being 45 minutes late to the bus!!!Those pen holders are quite the gift! Good job on the tutoring. Keep up the good work with your interviews! Good looking pork burger, Pete!Maybe someone would translate the newspaper article about your picture! Mom

Man, I wish we'd seen the poster about the snake before it happened right in front of us at Monkey Janes!!! Cool place, otherwise. :) Too bad we also got desperately lost on our Dragon Bridge adventure...at least you guys had no falls! Sounds like a good but muddy Easter:)

AHHHH, I did NOT realize you had a picture of a dog on here, I specifically avoided this section when we were here...I went back and noticed your tiny warning of the pics :P I'm glad you guys are having fun in spite of all the rain...the cooking class was one of the best things we did there also!
4th April 2010

cooking lesson
Looks like another fun day in china! The cooking lesson sounds neat! The mud bath??? I can't believe the dog hanging in public!!! North Face coat for almost 22.00 ! HAPPY EASTER...I am saving your candy until you get home in July!!!! I am sure it will be fine!!!!

Shenzhen to Guilin
You must have your own GPS inside of you !!!!! All of the things you find!!! Hope your runny nose goes away soon!!! I love those slippers! Can you imagine living in that house boat??

Wiki is wrong
I'm surprised that Wiki forgot to mention Chongqing. It's the most populated city with around 30 million ppl. And it feels like it.

So that's why!
Some of the high school students that attend my SAT/TOEFL/IELTS classes have grey hair. No lie!

HS in China
Not much entertaining in china in the school system! I find that hard to believe that the seniors only get one chance for that "tall test" !!! Our students would think their system is way too intense!!!!
