This week I started back teaching and it was nice to see all my students. I received my new schedule and it is great!! M, W, T, F I have two classes in the afternoon and Tuesday I have one class in the morning. A total of 9 one hour and forty-five minute classes a week. Not bad!!
Two weeks ago when Gus was still here I had a football match and my team was short of players and Gus was allowed to play. It was sweet. We both played in the middle and we played like we had grown up together! Odd. Gus had two goals and I had two assists
So, about my adventures with my mom and friends.
My mom first arrived in Chongqing and we chilled out a few days while she got over her jetlag. My Chinese friend (very wealthy) took my mom out for a incredible meal, Karaoke, then a Chinese club one night. She got to see how the rich roll in China. I think she had fun, but it was all very overwhelming. The next day my Chinese friend took us to a hot springs resort. They had about twenty different pools, with different temperatures and different styles. For example one had fish that would eat your dead skin. It was the weirdest thing in the world. They had a red wine pool and flower pool. It was a lot of fun. My mom got an amazing Thai style massage. Good Times!
After Chongqing Alex, Isabelle, my mother and I set off for Yunnan. We first drove to Kunming and stayed a night there
Lijiang was great. We stayed six nights and caught up on R&R. During our stay we checked out a local bar, went horseback riding, had long walks around the old city, drank loads of tea and slept. I got sick during our stay, but I was lucky to have mom there. It was the worst flu I have had in 5 years. I was in bed for 48 hours!
