Chengdu Apartment Hunting

              It’s Saturday morning and many of our Qing Hai students are off, dragging their luggage behind them, on their way home. They have a 3-1/2 hour bus trip to Chengdu, followed by a 26 hour train trip to Qing Hai’s capital city where many will transfer onward to get to their villages.
             And for me, it’s off to Chengdu to look for an apartment! My hope is to find something near where I was before, 5 years ago, in the same neighborhood.
            I will also be picking up my Sichuan University acceptance letter from the overseas’ student department. This will allow me to get my student visa, once I am back in the States in a few weeks. Applying for visas must be done in your home country, thus the return to America to get that taken care of.
            At present, the schedule is to return to Luzhou after Chengdu, fly off to America on July 18 and return August 19 to apply for my permanent student visa in Chengdu. Classes I heard begin on Sept. 15 but we are to be there early.
             I will not be reporting while in Chengdu as my website is blocked on other computers, thus this note until I return to Luzhou next week.

             Ping An (Peace), everyone! More news later on.

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 .
