A week night

Dongguan, China

Hi there!

It's Wednesday night...thought I'd share with you what I got up to tonight....after school we went out for dinner to our favourite restaurant around here - it's called Neighbourhood's Favourite, and if we last here 12 months they will be seeing a lot of us!! We had a yummy dinner - 3 dishes plus rice and unlimited Chinese tea and watermelon....Luckily the menu is in English as well as Chinese. The total cost was 60 Yuan ...i guess about $10!!! It was enough to get take away as well.....then after that a group of us went for a massage. THe massage parlour is in the hairdresser's....1 hour massage cost 20 Yuan ($4 or so). Wow. I think I'll be there every night!!!

We get a long lunchtime at school because of the heat, so lunch is from 11.40 to 2.20pm. It's enough time to come home, have lunch and then have a little nap (just like the students - they all have a sleep at lunch!). Quite a lot of the students are boarders, and we saw their dorms - about 10 beds in a small room, and a very small bathroom. The mattresses are so thin you can hardly call them a mattress....Poor little kids!! I haven't quite worked out how long the school day is - it just seems to go on and on for the CHinese teachers and the kids....even at 9pm at night there are classes going on. The teachers are at school until about 10pm and they seem to start at 7 ish in the morning(not that I would know!!!)

Anyway, better go, hope everyone is well. Love, Ruth
