Christmas

Merry Christmas!

As part of the festivities we had a school Christmas party where we had to perform a short pantomime of Cinderella and oddly a catwalk show. Over 300 families were invited so it was a big crowd and the owner of the school had organised a sit down meal whilst some sort of christmas themed dance, song or skit was performed every 10 minutes or so.

It wasn’t the best organised event and the food left a lot to be desired but we had fun performing Cinderella and watching the other acts. I only saw one of my own students that evening but I managed to get some photos with him for his parents so they were very happy.

On Christmas day we went with 30 other laowai to the Australian Bite which was hosting a Christmas dinner. The food was scrummy but the service was awful in that Jack and I had our starter and mains two hours before some others had their main and we had to wait until 9pm for our dessert (we started at 6pm). There just wasn’t enough staff to cope despite the whole thing being pre-arranged but anyway we had some nice turkey and met some Americans that we got on with so that’s the main thing.

We’re back to work for the weekend but after that we have holiday until the 6th of January (which is much needed after the past month) and on Monday we are jetting off to Xi’an for 3 nights to check out the city and see the Terracotta Warriors which we’re both really excited about. Expect lots of pics.

Until then: Happy New Year!
