Last week we visited Inner Mongolia and had a lot of fun but I haven’t been able to look at the pictures yet so on Sunday/Monday when I get back from another trip I will make a separate post about the desert. You’ll have to do with 1 picture for now from my phone.
Today was my graduation. In the schools auditorium we had the ceremony with awards, performances etc, it was fun. During the entire semester I’ve been afraid that I’ll fail and therefore I haven’t applied for student loans (CSN). It came as a big surprise when I ended up having 87, 89 and 92 out of 100 total in writing, listening and speaking respectively. After that our teacher 徐老师 invited us for lunch so we went to a traditional Beijing restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing. Since it was raining really badly me and Alex decided to go to the internet café together with Ruizhi (a korean girl). When it stopped raining I started to get home and when I finally arrived at my subway station it was poring down so badly I had to get a taxi and leave my bike knowing that I’d have to pick it up later today as I’m going away tomorrow. The rain did not stop. Ever. It just got worse. So I went to get my bike and got wet to the bone. Now we’re packing and preparing for tomorrow as my mom and I are going to Pingyao, one of Chinas ancient cities. Exciting, except for the 4 hour train ride there. Sometimes you forget how big China is.
