I teach two kindergarten classes every week on Monday. Each class is only 25 minutes long but I fear these two classes more than all of my Junior classes combined. If you were to run a lawnmower in the classroom during my first class, you would have no idea that anything was different. My second class is much better and they love to raise their hands and answer questions. I still lose them quickly as they have the attention span of a goldfish. Anyhow, I guess its a good experience for me and the kids enjoy the class. Here are some pictures from both classes today.

from the rooftops

Here are a few pictures of the city that I took from on top of my apartment building tonight.
(the red lights on top of some of the apartments are phrases in English and Chinese characters. One says Huai Te Community of Wisdom and Knowledge, the other says Huai Te Palace of Advantageous Community (or something like that) (Huai Te is a family/company that owns a lot in our part of town)))

The city

Maybe someday I'll get around to finishing my vacation blog but not this day. Here are some pictures that I took while on a walk around the city.
