On Sunday all of us girls went together to Chengdu's Panda Centre, it was really nice but we all had to wake up early, so we went on the 3hours walk and it took us less time than that, but we kept losing one person as we all look somewhat similar to them, then three of us came back to the appartment to have lunch, then I slept some more, tried to get on the internet again and the others went shopping and washed laundry, two of us then went to People's Park together, but on our way home stopped for food but she told the lady no spice a bit of salt on my Chips(they call it) and then I was feeling really ill for 20hours not fun so I slept and drank water, I went to bed early. The next day the others got up for work and I the fell back to sleep after a what is going on question, I stayed at the appartment for most of the day, then went to get a microwave cake for the Scottish guy staying in our flat as it was his birthday, then we all had a good time all together we all went out for a birthday meal for him, we meet another person who had been with Projects Abroad also Scottish but smoked, and his girlfriend, her friend and his friend. They then went to a smoke easy bar with no windows.
Tuesday I meet Elaine for the first time, I then had my indrocuction to the culture talk, then we went to wide and narrow alley and got Lydia a Panda bear, then I came back to the flat with my Lycee and had some with chocolate, we then went out to an English speaking bar which was nice as some of us do not speak much Chinese.
Today I got up and felt sick so stayed in all morning doing laundry etc, I then felt better by this afternoon and went to the sqare to get some nail clippers and then to small and wide alley (not sure which it is not looking at a map) and got a gift for ...

Yesterday I meet three of my four room mates, I am sharing one of the double rooms as we also have a male so he has the single room, the girls are really nice, the kitchen is very small though which is a change, also I had to get a medical exam and had the blood tests today, I am getting on really well there is another girl adopted from China and another Chinese girl but from HongKong, the girl I am sharing with is from California to be exact but she is half Chinese so we have a very Chinese feel to the appartment so far the only guy in our appartment is from Scottland so I am wondering what he is like, I am the youngest of all of us at just 18, the next oldest is one of the boys from the other appartment and he is from Sweedan and is really nice but very tall at 6.5ft (scary), then there are two of the girls in my appartment my roomate and the girl from HongKong they are 21 and then we have two 23year olds and that is the other adopted girl and the other guy from the appartment he lived in India and is Indian and moved with his family to Australia, the eldest is the only boy in our appartment he is in his 30's so thats going to be diffrent. We went out yesterday two of the girls from the appartment I am in and the two guys from the other we went to a little traditional area which was really nice and got to know the others a bit. At first it was stange but then we went to two clubs looking for work collegues of one of my roomates as she is interning at a law firm, it was really nice till I found out it was a smoke easy, also I was not suppost to eat after 9pm but was drinking bubble tea (yup thats right), so it was 9:39pm but I got my blood around 10am so it was fine. It was nice at the club but none of us realised how fancy it was. Today the others all went to go to ...
Ok so the plane arrived late and of couse I was not enjoying myself, wondering how far off the ground we were and if the pilots even knew where they were flying to. I then spent a lot of time at the passport/security check as they just asked me questions in Chinese well that went well, why don't you have a Chinese passport?? I was adopted at 18months old, why don't you speak Chinese as I went to a place where there were not many Chinese speakers and I didn't have lessons so no. Fun Fun Fun, had a shower and now eating lunch while writting a blog post.
