These Thousand Hills

17 09 2016

Well, we are back and running for 2016-2017!

And we (literally) set it off with a bang – with hundreds of fireworks for our friends’ wedding. As a rule, Chinese weddings tend to be loud because people set off a LOT of fireworks (even in the middle of the day).

The next day, we allĀ “climbed” a mountain (aka rode up an enclosed chair lift and walked around).

It cleared up on our way down and we were able to seeĀ These Thousand Hills of His creation.

Our school “kidnapped” us tonight to attend a welcome dinner for new teachers and brought us to a festival. We watched traditional ShaoXing traditions and even tried calligraphy at the end.
