Spring is finally here and life lately feels full of friendship, fellowship, and new experiences. Last weekend, my teammates and I spent a retreat day at the Confucius forest and cemetery. Then we went to the local hostel and ate french fries. The next day my teammate and I hopped on our bikes for another foray into the countryside.
Our university had a school-wide sports meeting yesterday and today, which gave us lots of time to enjoy the nice weather and hang out with our students. No class! I went to a local Confucius theme park with some juniors yesterday. Today, two girls came over and taught me how to make some Chinese dishes. Then I had a Chinese lesson with my adorable tutor.
New restaurants, new parks, studies of the Word, bike rides, lesson planning, dinners with students and friends... These are good days in Qufu.
