My daughter then wanted to abandon me in the computer room while she played...but I am a bit more independant now. I came back here to the apartment, put our stuff away, and plan to hit the bakery I noticed across the street before going back, perhaps with a book or something. It is nice to feel free to do things.
Our time here is winding down. Not much longer. Tomorrow is the actual Chinese New Year. Frankly, I haven't the least idea what is in store for us. The next day I have to find the post office. (Ping-Ping continues to not understand why I can't mail my post cards in America when we get home.)
It is so peaceful and quite here, except for the noise of cars in the distance. It has been so restful to have little to do and not to have to cook meals. That part I wish I could do all the time. Still, I have some good idea for meals based on what we ate at the school.
What a wonderful magical experience it has been so far.
