travel tip 3

So I've been working on packing and I've realized in China whenever you buy something they give you double the packaging you need. They automatically give you a gift box and a gift bag and a normal bag and if it's fragile it will be wrapped 3 different ways to protect it. This is the pile of packaging I have to walk down to the community trash bin.

Also leave a lot more room then you think you need in you're bag. Last night my family gave me a ton of gifts to give to my American mom and dad and the packing I had done was totally flipped and now I'm leaving b things behind I didn't need to leave before.

Beijing Opera Lesson

We learned about Beijing opera the other day! We sang a song about it, got to try on masks, and learned about the different marking's meanings! It was a really fun and interesting!

Talent Show!!!

So we do not have an actual closing ceremony so our teachers decided to have a talent show. Unfortunately we only found out a day beforehand so we were all caught off guard. We had piano players, singers, group numbers, a "fashion show" put on by the boys, a violin number, and me performing ballet!!! Unfortunately I can't post video on this blog but when I get back some videos will go up on facebook! For now enjoy some pictures!

Dancing! I did not have ballet shoes. I got some black shorts at Walmart to go with a blank shirt and nylons! It's basically a makeshift leotard!

Apperently my sister said the Chinese kids have known about this for weeks. We just found out. We are going to look so crazy lol. I was nominated to do a ballet solo that I just finished choreographing an hour ago, I am pretty sure it's a mess but oh well :)
