Where I stayed
Some 4 star hotel
Day 3: Settling in.
We have to be down and at the breakfast table by 7.30 everyday. This is important because not only is it the time that the food is on the table, but we have to be there for mandatory temperature checks. Not a problem, I didn't have a high temperature and I don’t plan to.
Chinese breakfast is very strange, nothing like what we would have in England or anywhere in Europe for that matter. It was very similar to what they would eat during dinner with stuff that you would expect to have as your main dishes at the Chinese. Sounds good, but not in the morning! There is melon and eggs etc, so I just pig out on that sort of stuff. My stomach was still not agreeing with the Chinese food, but I have to continue eating it until my body gets used to it all.
I think that the TTC staff were aware of our boredom at this point, and so they had bought us some crappy games that we could play with. Stuff like Jenga, connect 4, but my favourite thing was Chinese hacky sack. Unusual as I don’t like hacky sack, but this was a different type of hacky, one that I could actually play.
After hacky I felt incredibly sick, must have been the food. So crashed out for about 5 hours, which did me a world of good to be honest. Didn’t think that I would be taken out so hard but it was definitely worth it. Even managed to miss out lunch, tactically because I didn’t want to feel sick again from the food.
Finished off the night watching episode 2 of the mighty boosh (season 2), and I fucking loved it!! Always heard people go on about it (especially Romy and Louisa)
