It feels like I just arrived back in Beijing and now I just spent the past 6 hours cleaning and packing so I can leave again. The past three weeks were kind of a blur, back to work as usual. Our last day was yesterday so we celebrated by making some dragon masks and papercutting traditional characters for Chinese New Year, aka Spring Festival, with their Chinese teacher, Carol.
I did not neglect our apartment either, cleaning and hanging up traditional decorations. I put the character for Fu, or good fortune, on our front door. Then I stuck smaller versions on every other door in the house.
I also put one on ShuaiShuai’s tank for good measure. I’m taking no chances. We need all the luck we can get in this house.
That’s all for now, but I’ll be posting very soon from Barcelona. Countdown to take off- 10 hours, 19 minutes!
