Still crazy hot here, but I can’t believe it’s only Tuesday. Today is our last day of new teacher orientation. Tomorrow all the staff comes back. I”m looking forward to this, because it will be nice to meet the team. Last night we went to a popular area of Shanghai that has a ton of restaurants catered to Westerners, as well as, Shanghai’s famous pearl market (I’ll be checking that out later). We went to Mexico Lindo, which on Monday has 50% off all food and 2 for 1 deals on pitchers of Margaritas. Let’s just say, everyone had a good time! Last night was the 1st time that both Jason and I took the subway and like everyone says, it’s so easy, and surprisingly clean!
Today is dedicated to classroom time. I may venture out and pick up some pots and pans I found on Craig’s list, problem is I have no idea how to find this lady’s apartment! Also today, our Ayi (Auntie) starts! She will be coming 2x a week to clean, do laundry, and help out! I know this sounds a little over the top, but it’s almost expected of us since we both are earning a living. It’s our way to help people out. And hey, I won’t complain about not having to do the laundry!
