in Yangshuo, Guilin, China -- Sara Seggie
China and I are doing absolutely fantastic...we're like
this we are (my fingers are crossed really tightly)
Yangshuo still never ceases to make me giggle on my
little bicycle. My school is outstanding, my students
are my closest friends and Chinese people ALWAYS have
a glowing, innocently curious smile as they gently reach
out to warmly hold my hand.
experiences I've had since being here are amazing, on
national tv a few times, in the newspaper at least every
couple of weeks, having a tv documentary made about
me, wined and dined with one group of government leaders
after another, ringing new town bells, lecturing to
groups of 500 to promote English, skipping class with
my 6 students and running away for the day to wander
for hours through the biggest cave in China, running
races and winning cash prizes, working with the biggest
promoter and teacher of English in all of Asia, Lee
Yang (Crazy English) and now I have the pleasure of
having my mother here to share it all with.
chinese is coming along, simple conversations, the greasy
food is not making me fat but, my nails sure are nice.
Closer to the end of the year I am going to travel all
up the west side of China, head back down to Thailand
and then fly home to Ottawa for Christmas with me dear
sweet Granny.....then it's back to China for sure!!
I'm not through with this place, I think it will take
a few years to get over China!
better with emailing these days so you can leave my
email address with my letter if you post it on the website...I'll
do my best to respond to any grads interested in China.
million good things under a lampshade hat.
