So! I know its been a while, but I will do my best to update everyone! A really sweet girl, Jessica had to go to the hospital because her appendix burst.. She will probably b in the hospital for about a week but she is now in recovery and doing much better. Last Saturday we took a day trip to a place called "Lands End" which is the most eastern point of China. It was a very interesting place but my friend Matt said his students told him not to go there because it changes your fate and the word they used was "doomed". uh oh. Oh well.. After we went to the zoo. All I have to say was that it was awful. The animals are in such small proximity and they are cruel to them : ( We were walking from one animal exhibit to the next and there was this guy walking up to him with a BLACK BEAR. The bear had a piercing through his lip and the man was holding on to the rope attached to his lip trying to sell us a picture with this bear. I could no believe it. I dont think I will be going to zoos anymore after . oh ya, and there was this place called Monkey Prison and we bought fruit to feed to monkeys and they come up to you to get the food but if they get to close, the employee of the zoo will throw rocks at them. I felt bad for the monekys. Posted some pictures of our lunch from that dat...def. found a chicken foot in the porl soup. lol. Gotta love China. This has been our last week with our students (We taught them how to dance western style) and we leave for the next city Jinan on saturday. Jinan is a huge city of 6 million and apparently REALLY polluted so i'll let ya know. I had my last class today and my students and it was sad but I am to teach in Jinan because I feel I have a better grasp on what I am supposed to be doing. Ate silkworm cocoon tonite fyi. gross. lol. Miss you all and write soon!!!!!! xxx N CONGRATULATIONS IAN!!!! Found out yesterday he got the BMW Formula scholarship so if anyone knows of a interested sponsor let me know : ) xx
