Tomorrow morning we’re heading out for two nights of camping with our Korean and Taiwanese students. For most of them it’s their first time ever. They practiced putting their tents up today (it took them about 90 minutes). My class pitched the biggest fit when I told them they couldn’t take their PSP’s and iPods. And then we had a vocab lesson with confiscate and addiction.
Tonight we had dinner with a mom and her son from Qingdao. It was a really interesting evening, in part because she and her family lived through some of the major events of China’s last 40 years. It’s so interesting to hear about events I’ve seen in history videos from people who were there.
