... because that puts me in high social status here (this annoys me to no end, but it is unfortunately true). I also discovered that there are other foreign teachers around who have no teaching qualifications, no TEFL certificate, no experience and even no bachelor degree. They just fake their confidence and people respect them for the white face. I was a little shocked by revelation, but this knowledge (absurd as it sounds), combined with just ...

... 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.
There are a ton of markets around here, so we went to the supermarket to get food to keep ...

... like bed sheets, a kettle and other bits and pieces. It was quite a saga shopping for things that have no English labels and conversations with the staff would often at times end up with them trying not to laugh at my obviously poorly spoken Chinese. They are very patient though. I managed to get most things, except finding a bed sheet was proving difficult, as was a bath towel. The supermarkets seemed to have hundreds of hand towels, but no ...

... Anyway Ian and I left after the movie while Will stayed to sleep in the office cinema, which is his usual bed.

This morning I had an appointment to look at an apartment through an agent Will had organised for me. The agent rang me at 9.30 and I went to meet him. He told me to hop on the back of his little electric scooter and we rode around the district looking at apartments. It was fun actually and once you get used to it ...

... the stone carvings were damaged during the Cultural Revolution, but have been restored. One of the finest carvings is of the Laughing buddha, which is all original, and over 1,000 years old, not having been destroyed in the Cultural Revolution. Another stone pagoda at the entrance to the main temple is over 1,000 yrs old and is an original structure.
Dinner tonight was at an original government owned restaurant, on a beautiful ...

    You really do get the culture of staying in a Chinese Hotel when you stay here. The staff were as helpful as they could be, the room was clean however I am not used to the smell of cigarettes everywhere in the hotel. Thankfully my room did not smell to much, however there was an ashtray on the table, on the toilet roll holder and next to the bed. It is a long walk from the main West Lake however the reason I chose the hotel was its location to the Hangzhou train station
