For dragon boat festival some of the others went to Dujigo, which is in English five colour lake, they all enjoyed their trip, there were four of us who stayed here as one of the group left, we had like lots of gatherings before she left. Now in the flat I am in there are two of us which is very unusual as normally we have more. My lovely roomate has left and gone to Kanding it is famous for budist temples I think, one of the other girls has gone to Beijing and one other girl has left. It is now really intresting to see people and get to know them but it's sad to know that we are all going to end up leaving. I was thinking of going with some of the girls to Lishan I think that is how you spell it and it has the giant budha and an antient town.
Sorry it takes me so long to write these but time and also I am not always able to get onto the site.
So today, I went to placement and got a lot of paper to fill in some with the children some without, I also did not have my buddy there toay but I got lots of hugs which helped make me feel a bit better and better than last night (girls you know what I am talking about). I also am going out with some of the other voulenteers for dinner which is nice, (to celebrate it being my adoption day) although I only foind out yesterday that we are all going to go karaokeing on Tuesday. I walked down a mountain Saturday the photos are on facebook as it is easier to upload to there. I love my placement and all the children are wonderful, (it has been pointed out stealing children is wrong (even though they are so adorable)) I will finish this short entry by saying have a fun time where ever you are.
It is so awesome, it's just a 20mins walk from the appartment, the children are lovely there are about 30 in the class that I am helping out with, they are 4 I think but they are great and I love them all as individuals and as the group they give you a smile and like to talk to you but nap time is really hard to deal with as not all of them sleep, some annoy you until they can wake up but its great. They are the best, I know your not to have favourites but I kind of do as it was really cute today two of the boys in the class held my hand and kissed my arms it was adorable, one of them also tried to rest their head on my lap which is a no no, but they are so adorable and I do not know how you can not love them as they are wonderful. They are all really helpful and like to spend time with you and I am the person with the plasters so they come over to me with their cuts and I plaster them up.
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 ...
