... work day now usually begins with getting up at 5.30am, catching the bus by 6.30 to be at my first school by 8.15 or 9 am depending on the location, I then teach until 8pm with hour or 2 hour breaks between classes while I travel to other campuses, and ends with me arriving home at 9 or 10 pm and then spending a couple of hours preparing the following day's lessons. I have to admit it is not as bad as it sounds, but I am exhausted. I do enjoy ...

... motorcycles, scooters, bikes, and pedestrians. The light just turns green and you go. Driving is insane, there might as well not be any lanes painted on the road. Driving here is kind of like a cat, "if it fits, it sits", so "if it fits, it goes"... and sometimes not even if it fits it still goes. But the taxis are pretty cheap which is good.

... dirty yet tasty meat skewers and cold beer. I was pretty exhausted after being in a plane all day so went to bed soon after.

While in Hangzhou, I will be both studying at Chinese School, and teaching at English school. Both are at different locations in the city, but are part of the same company. I'm not exactly sure what the balance will be for me yet and the first few days will probably be spent on sorting that out.
