November comes to a close...

sunny 16 °C

Doing my darnest in posting November's events, but as we know as the end of the year approaches, everything happens quickly. Not sure if most of you know the news, but Dujiangyan, Sichuan, had experienced a short earthquake in which our building (white building) shook loudly violently, also enough that awaken everyone on campus (for those of us who remained on campus for the weekend).

Scary indeed, most of us, who is experiencing Dujianygan's first aftermath earthquake is ... yes ... makes us quite uneasy. Nevertheless with faith and positive thinking we do hope the tremors will pass and stay gone.

Friday Guangya School primary and middle school students perform their selected fairy tales and recited their lines in English. Their innocence of speaking the English language is so wonderful and delightful.

Also, on Saturday the Foreign teachers gathered and participated in doing a Thanksgiving Potluck meal which was a great turn out. Re-editing video... on it's way...

Then on Sunday, I celebrated a non-tradition meal Chinese style with other Foreigners (not from America)... sorry, no video. Our meal was very basic and simple and quite delicious.

Glad you had a great thanksgiving. The photos are beautiful, very colorful and dynamic. How is the weather there? It’s been a little cooler here, but in the 70’s today. It was in the 50’s yesterday. All is well here. Hang in there.

I have just viewed your pictures and i must say everything you do is very professional, Good Work ! I have had my leave cancelled for Thanksgiving, and I look forward for Jan to come when I will have vacation. I had a flt the other day from Riyadh, Egypt, actually flew over the pyramids at 800 feet, then to Paris and London. Coming back the route took us over the Black Sea and then south back to Saudi. It was very interesting , as I have never flown over that part of the earth. Its the Holy holiday here and Hajj has be gone. For all muslims,doing Hajj is the highlight of their religion. The weather here in Riyadh is very cold, usually about 16 C.
Thanks for your up-date and please keep in touch.
