Hope all is going well with you guys?
Beijing is mad, Mr Hunter and I addressed 2100 children with a microphone after the flag raising ceremony on a stage. The school is great and the children are the same the world over, except they bow when they say hello. I feel honoured every time.
I have eaten sea slug, cows stomach and pigs trotters. Apart from that the food is amazing.
I am taking pictures of myself with Paopao the panda everywhere. I left my camera in a cab on the first day and we had to go to 2 police stations to get the lost property report. Very exciting!!
I have ended picking up as much Mandarin as I could to get taxis to take us places etc. I have bartered in markets, had a drink in a 5 star hotel and I am working very hard. Hee hee. Well we’re in school for 7.30 for breakfast which is sometimes soup or cakes. All the staff lunch together and that is really tasty.
Hope all is well!
Love Mrs Haughey xx
