Well I have arrived here in China. The weather was quite cold when I arrived but has now evened out to warm days and a not so cold nights. In fact, tonight I do not have my air con heat on. I start teaching tomorrow Monday. This weekend ventured outinto the streets by myself - even crossed the streets like a local. Not a mean feat - buses, taxis, motorbikes, pushbikes pay no attention to pedestrian signals. I think green means go faster and try to hit as many crossing the street as you can. I bought a scarf today 25yuan (Chinese currency) and it works out at $3.77 Australian. For $1 Australian you get 66yuan. So living is relatively cheap.
Until I work out this blogging here in China, I am unable to post photographs. Bye for now, Margaret
