I have arrived in Hangzhou, and I had a KFC while I was waiting for JD. I was very happy to see her, but I suppose I must have been so overwhelmed by everything that I forgot to take photos of anything, except to show JD where I was so that we could find each other…
JD had asked her colleague, TT, to drive her to the airport and then take us to my accommodation. Such a blessing to have good friends here. Despite having the address, I don’t think I would have found the flat on my own. Also XL’s (my “host mother”) aural English is even poorer than I thought, so it was great that JD was there for the initial greetings with her. I can see it’s going to be a “fun” 3 months. (By “fun”, I suppose I mean hard work for both XL and me).
We passed the light show on the way over. From my room on the 33rd floor, I can see some of the river and buildings used for that show.
未来三个月我的家。Wèilái sān gè yuè wǒ de jiā. My home for the next three months.
JD and I are going to meet up for a short time tomorrow. Probably just to do a bit of shopping or something.
