And now, a little something special. You suffice to be hot?
My team leader, Lisa, is here in Beijing now, too, and I got to have dinner with her yesterday. Tomorrow, all the rest of the returning teachers will arrive, and the RuYi will be overrun with foreigners. I'm starting to feel a little sad to be leaving Beijing and the friends I've made here. It's only been 5 weeks since I said my goodbyes and packed my bags to go to Colorado, and only 4 weeks since I packed my bags to come here. This weekend I'll pack up for one final journey -- my move to Qufu! Please be thinking of me as I make this final transition.
