- Blood pressure
- Vision test
- Urine test
- Blood test
Our admin took us all to McDonalds afterward, which I thought was kind of funny, but having not eaten since yesterday because of the blood test, I was so hungry that it tasted wonderful.
Got to ride the bus at least four times today, at least that is pretty much like any big city. Traffic is nuts here, it follows the rules very loosely, but there must be some implicit rules because despite the fact that everyone is doing as they please and navigating by use of the horn, I didn't see anyone actually crash. Crossing the street is a lot like the old arcade game "Frogger".
Didn't have time to go back to the apartment after that so I just took a nap in the teacher lounge at the school and then it was time for our training with our foreign director. We got introduced to the curriculum and watched a model class, the tiny kids were so cute.
Walked back to the apartment with the foreign director, so hopefully I will be able to find my way to school in the morning. I will try to get around on foot at least until the weather gets too hot for me. I need the exercise and there are a ton of interesting little shops and food joints on the side streets. We got some steamed buns at a place near the school, my first real Chinese food and it was really tasty.
I'm glad our admin took me for a sample shopping trip in the supermarket after I arrived here, because some of the procedures I wouldn't have known, such as having the employee weigh up the produce. Braved the supermarket on my own this evening to buy new pillows, go me!
After watching our admin shepherd all of us through the exams today and listening to the very vocal complaints of one teacher couple who hate their apartment, I think he should be nominated for sainthood.
