A Little Nervous

Everyone was a little nervous this morning. First day of teaching! Baoli, as usual, was calm and reassuring and the kids were great and it was fun teaching them. I wish I had brought more stickers. They were a hit. We went to a welcoming dinner with the teachers after school where one of the dishes was fried locusts and grubs. They were delicious and probably healthier than potato chips.


Interesting fact about China learned so far: No toilet paper is to be flushed down. It goes in a little waste basket and the maids have the task of taking it away.
