The food right?? - false advertising man.

You would think the food would be amazing as Chinese food is generally good - Noooooooo...

I saw one girl (what's the word when your really sad or disappointed?) anyway, she pulled something from her food which caused a bit of commission as it was moving. Agh, it makes me nauseous thinking of it...every time.

What's up with that?

Oh yeah and don't forget the cold showers - gear up for some nice refreshing cold showers.

Turns out the water is heated by solar panels which is great for he environment and energy consumption. However the environment in the area doesn't allow the sun through the smog very often and when I say very often I mean I saw the sun once the entire time I was there. A rare day of blue sky's. So prepare yourself for that as well.

It seems China is pretty polluted and it's not over rated by the media, if anything it's under rated. It's dirty!!

Talking of dirty prepare yourself to see children urinating and deficating in the street and sometimes indoors. Yes that yellow puddle you see in the elevator - not lemonade....oh God and the spitting.

The sound of hacking and spitting is not imprinted in my mind forever - ggggggggh - spat!! Lovely....

I could go on all day about how they scream - talk to each other, the general lack of respect for themselves and anything else for that matter or the fact lying for them is as natural as chewing food...which they don't do...

Wow this is turning into a rant I didn't expect...okay so when you do get taken out to a restaurant which is pretty much all the outings you wil get as its mutual beneficial as they seem to enjoy the slop served there with with the occasional tolerable dish you get subjected to the sound of heavy slurping.

But just bare in mind that the sound is emphasized, accompanied with the smacking of lips to ensure that everyone within 5km is aware they are enjoying their food.

To that effect the scream/talking I learnt whilst researching it on the Internet is to show they are having a good time. It seems that unless everyone around them can see and hear them been obscenely obnoxious then they cannot be having a good time....

I respected the Chinese a lot more before I went to China.

I'm not sure if the experience with other schools would be better and to be honest a comfy bed in a nice room with hot water to shower in and good food would probably have made a difference.

Maybe if we had someone other than our friend Jenny taking care of us with all her wonderful craft lessons and cooking lessons it would have been slightly different. It looks like taking care of the foreign students is a great honor and for her it's the same as eating and having a good time, as long as everyone around knows she is so spectacular then it doesn't actually matter how the kids are doing.

Dismal time is about right - thanks for wasting time I can never get back Jenny.

Talk about false advertising man.
