Web is still busy for me, five classes a day and English Corner twice this week. Things should be different now the summer holiday is over, but we lost Ed --from Wakefield, who has gone to Beijing -- and Gary -- who has gone home for two months -- so our staff of seven teachers is down to five. By now our workload should be about four classes a day, which would be a great relief compared to the current schedule.
I had another English Corner today which was actually quite pleasurable for once. We talked about giving advice, I gave them some problems of mine to answer and asked if they had any to share. I didn't think I would get anything, but straight away one student began telling us of her desire to have cosmetic surgery on her nose (for some reason it seems to be a good thing to have big nose in China, especially one with a high bridge). At the end of the class a student came up to me to ask where I get my haircut, I knew the place, just not the name. I asked "Why?" She replied, "Because I want to get my haircut like yours." I think that's my cue to have a trim....
Last night Kimi and I went to an Indian restaurant, the only one in Wenzhou. It is very good, although quite different from British-Indian food. I wonder which is more genuine? I will have to find out one day. However tasty my potato curry was, I couldn't help but be slightly annoyed that there were only two small potatoes in the whole thing. If it wasn't for the deep-fried vegetables and the naan bread filling me up, I would have complained for sure (or asked Kimi to do it for me).
