When in China, do as the Chinese do

Yesterdays temperatures made it almost to 80 degrees. Spring is in the air! Well, it better be because the government turned off our heat on March 15.

I began teaching about the Roman Empire this week. We were discussing the origins of the phrases “all roads lead to Rome” and “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” When I asked the class about the meaning of “when in Rome, do as the Romans do,” a kid responded “when in China, buy pirated DVDs!”
