Fourth Week

of classes

96 °F

Hey! Looks like this is becoming a weekly thing, so here's what went on last week. We had class Monday and Tuesday and then Mid Autumn day was Wednesday. We spent time with some friends and lit a lantern and wrote wishes on it to the moon. Thursday we were invited to Dim Sum with our good friend Alvin and his family, so delicious. Then we visited the Guangdong Museum of Art, just opened a couple months ago. Friday we rested and did homework in the studio. This weekend we have class to make up for the time off for the national holiday which is next week. We plan to travel so wish us luck! PICS NOW

Lately

what we've been up to

sunny 100 °F

Hello again from Guangzhou!

Things are great here we actually got a chance to explore a bit more yesterday. The city is preparing to host the 2010 Asian Games, so there is a lot of work going on, the games will be in November. Also this wednesday is Mid Autumn Festival Day or the Moon Festival. Mooncakes are a big deal here and we are excited to see the festivities. We went into the city Wednesday for a physical exam for our residency permit, and saw lots of things along the way. Friday we got to experience the wonders of KTV with some friends. And Saturday we went bicycling around the island a bit and saw some more. Now for the pics!
