NEXT DAY REPORT: I did hear from a new neighbor that she heard a "trumpet" when standing outside her porch which is two doors down from me. Oh well, she didn't seem to mind, I guess that sound really carries in a cement building. Glad this building is cement because the fire code is entirely different over here.
The new neighbor and another colleague of mine from upstairs went shopping at the local supermarket this afternoon and then out to dinner. Nice people to work with. We all have to go to the doctor tomorrow in order to get checked out so we can receive our certificates of residency. Since we are not allowed to eat beforehand, I suspect a cholesterol test is forthcoming. Perfect excuse for a big lunch. Also discovered that a couple in the apartment building next to ours has a convenience store in their place with good prices!
I also found out my work schedule which includes three day weekends! and only two days that I have to get up early in the mornings. My busiest day is only 5 hours of work! This is what I came to China for after all... I fully hope to stay for many years to come.
