Day 4

Yeah! I've heard from my DD! It's a mixed email if you read it from a concerned mothers point of view!

Day 3 (Wednesday) included 4 Chinese lessons in the morning & cultural activities in the afternoon which included traditional handicrafts, traditional games, traditional painting, Chinese calligraphy & Taiji.

Rachel was so excited about the cultural activities & know she will be having a ball!
Today the students have four Chinese lessons in the moring & a 'free' afternoon... (which they will have already had today by the time we get up this morning) and as we spend this morning... my daughter & her friends will be on their way to see the ..........

Chinese Traditional Acrobatics

Doesn't it look exciting!

Day 5 (Friday 9th July) includes 4 more lessons in the morning & in the afternoon a lecture on Chinese Etiquette & then on Saturday ooooooooooh, can't wait to tell you!!

Thank you for calling & thank you so much for your lovely comments. I don't feel quite so alone. Gez.xx

  6. WOW ...your DD is having the time of her life ...what an experience ...what amazing things she is seeing.... and like most mothers you are worrying about her...quite normal .... I feel you are there with her all the way, enjoying everything ...almost as much as she is . I think that you will be creating many scrapbooks of her visit.

  7. Oh my goodness Gez, she is one lucky girl, what a wonderful time she's having. Glad you've heard from her at last too xxx

  8. You must be so relieved to have heard from her - but it seems she's having a whale of a time I don't expect there's much time to think about anything else. Thanks for sharing her adventure with us xx

  9. Good to hear she's had the chance to get in touch Gez! Sounds like they're being kept busy enough that it was probably a logistical feat to manage it! The acrobatics look fab, don't they?
