    Tonight we visited Dong Ying. It was probably the most amazing night of my life. I will never forget it. I felt as if I was royal. We went for dinner to this luxurious restaurant where we had 5 servers, and our bathroom. The food was amazing. After we ate, we went massages which were awesome. We then went for more food and beer to finish the night.

    Today we went to another city called Zibo with all the kids. It was lots of fun. We hiked up a huge mountain, which had tons of butterflies. Afterwards, we had KFC for lunch. Strange right? We then went to an ancient market, which was really cool because, unlike most places it was actually old, and seemed to have not been restored like everything else.

    Last night we went for dinner and we met two Chinese men. One was a reporter for the local news and one of the first things he said was that he was drunk. He then cheersed us. Which, in China means you drink your glass. The second man was a police chief and was completely wasted. We Did not know he was a police chief at first. So, everyone was drinking and a police van pulls up and the police officer walks up to the second gentleman and walks him to the van. He was so wasted that he had called one of his officers to give him a ride home. In China this is not considered strange, it is normal.

    Today has been a very busy day. Chris and I walked overt to Joy Pointe which is a little bakery/coffee shop. We’ve been going there every morning, he orders coffee, and I try the different teas. This morning I had “Lipton Iced Grapefruit Tea”, it was very interesting to watch them make it, they added jam for the grapefruit flavor. A little strange tasting, but I like it. I also ordered some cake for my breakfast, it was very good. We then walked over to the school, had Chinese lessons. Afterwards, we cooked hamburgers with the kids, and they loved them. I am now on my break, and then we will be taking the kids to the market to get stuff for fruit salad.



    Yesterday Linda (our assistant) took us to this beautiful place where there was lots of little shops. We had tea with this man, on his beautiful wood table. I’ve never seen anything like it. The whole thing fascinated me. Making tea here is an art. He was very pleased to have us in his shop, and told us to come back whenever we please.

    There aren’t very many foreigners here. So, everyone treats us like we are celebrities. It’s a great feeling. We get stopped by many people asking to take pictures of us. Some other interesting things in China are that the kids here don’t wear diapers. So, their clothing has a slit where their butt is, and when they go to the bathroom it just falls out. Walking down the street you see shit everywhere. Also, in China they love to sleep. The other day the 3 of us were walking down the street and there were construction workers sleeping on the sidewalk. I found it very strange, but here it is considered normal.


    I haven’t had a chance to take very many pictures, but I don’t work over the weekends. So, I should be able to take some.
