Been doing all of the things. We've now pretty much gone through the entire program that the students go through. We've been to Beijing and Shanghai (both of which were AMAZING), and a small town called Tong Li (同里), which was a quiet change from the craziness of everywhere else.

I'm thoroughly wrecked. The next few days will be really hectic, but in a different way. I need to get a lot of resources organised, but first I need a rest. I had hoped to do more this weekend, but it hasn't panned out that way so far. I went through the route I want to take my students on during their first day here, which took up a fair amount of time because I'm also trying to find some collared shirts that I can wear until I get that appointment with a tailor. tomorrow I have a Chinese lesson at 10am, followed by several Skype dates, and I need to fit research of sites in there somewhere. 

I think the first couple of groups I teach will be very much like my first year of teaching, only much more intense. I have so very much to learn, and so little time to do it in. Wish me luck!

Also, I have some photos up here, if you're interested.
