And then there were eight

The Fu team is slowly leaving and we’re down to eight people, from twenty. Donna and Kevin leave on Saturday, Anna and I leave on Tuesday, and Joel and Mary leave on Wednesday. Loren and Mark E are sticking it out for the summer and the Olympics.

It’s been a nice change of pace to be here without class responsibilities, just relaxing and getting organized. Anna and I went to Qinhuangdao, a city two hours away by train where the Great Wall meets the ocean, with a student on Sunday. We got our money exchanged with the help of a Chinese friend since they make it next to impossible for foreigners to exchange RMB by themselves, and even then with a $500/day limit. I’ve also seen Kung Fu Panda and Prince Caspian in the past couple weeks. The four remaining singles walked to dinner in a lightning storm last night for a good meal that cost 12 yuan ($1.70). Other than that, we’ve just been hanging out – reading, watching movies in the evenings, and playing my recently acquired Beijing-edition Monopoly.
