Travel Blogs from Ningbo
I traveled to Ningbo on Monday evening after the English Subject Panel had finished.
I met Will at breakfast in the Citic Hotel on Tuesday morning and we went out to Ningbo Foreign Language School, which is one of my centres. The school is built in an amazing location in the south-east of Ningbo, surrounded by mountains and with a beautiful lake on site.
The staff here are all lovely. I had only been to this centre once before with Liz and Mary ...
... a German guy came along as a translator. (Christi, despite having lived here for so long has never really learned the language apparently.) Dave and I went to a tea ceremony in Beijing over the Christmas break so the whole thing wasn’t entirely new to me. Also, “ceremony” is maybe not the right word, it’s more of a tasting session. Which is great because you get to Try Before You Buy, ey!?! And just like wine tasting a good tea ...
... The acoustics were much better than the concert in Yuhuan, but it was difficult to play because it was freezing cold. Our soloist was not able to play one of the pieces because his fingers were too cold. Nevertheless, our audience was great. They loved to clap along with our songs and they cheered especially loud when our American singers sang in Chinese along with our Chinese singers. It was a really good concert.
... br> I'll see you when I get home and will keep you updated of course. Now, get on with running to estate in my abscence and ensuring the heirs and bears all behave.
All my love,

PS - this wil be my last email before coming home and I will not get a chance to read any ...
... to seriously take me on.
Text me when you can, as you leave Ningbo and get to Shanghai. Also when you land so I can get to arrivals on time. Call me if you can.
REMEMBER - ABSOLUTELY NO LEGS< FACES< EYEBALLS. Drink loads of water, take dehydration tablets, when all else fails, lay back think of England and moan appropriately,
Luv oo with all my heart. Now must get back to work,
