Returning to China

              In 20 minutes, I will be once again heading back to my Chengdu apartment in China.   The Olympic Torch has already cruised by my neighbors’ homes and I’m sure they were outside to watch it pass just a few blocks from our complex.  I’ll have to hear all the news of the exciting passing upon my arrival. 
              I’ll be able to once again start my China blogs on your Thursday morning so be looking for lots of updates on how Chengdu residents handle the Olympic Opening Ceremony and the weeks there-after with all the competitions.  At present, I have no plans to actually go to Beijing as I’ll be busy packing up for my move back to Luzhou and getting settled  into my teaching mode for Sept. 1, when my first day of classes will begin. 
             It’s been a wonderful and blessed year of studying, hard in some ways and wonderful in others, and a fantastic summer visit to the States, but it’s time to return to teaching life once again.  I do miss my students and I know they miss me.
             Wishing you all a good week.  Check for  return-to-China stories in the next few days.
             As always, Ping An (Peace) to you all

About connieinchina

I have been in the Asia region for 30 years as an English language teacher. 28 of those have been spent with the Amity Foundation, a Chinese NGO that works in all areas of development for the Chinese people. Amity teachers are placed at small colleges throughout China as instructors of English language majors in the education field. In other words, my students will one day be English teachers themselves in their small villages or towns once they graduate. Currently, this is my 13th year in Luzhou Vocational and Technical College. The college is located in Luzhou city (loo-joe), Sichuan Province, a metropolis of 5 million people located next to the Yangtze River .
