Honey was one of my best students when I worked in Pizhou. Driven, committed, kind, smart. Basically everything a teacher wants to find in a student. Now she has graduated from her school in Pizhou and is attending a school in Nanjing majoring in Chinese. That doesn’t mean she has given up on English. She is just getting a higher degree. She still wants to teach English. Actually, she is teaching already. I hadn’t seen her for nearly a year and a half, maybe more. Her English has improved, and for some reason she seems taller to me now. But maybe I’ve just gotten shorter.
Nothing like spreading out on a couple rocks to take a quick snooze. I think the Chinese can make themselves comfortable just about anywhere.
This man is flying a bird kite. Actually I don’t know the technical term for it. Basicall it is a tiny kite designed to look like a bird. They don’t fly very high. Just high enough to mimic the birds that fly between the trees. This man has two bird-kites flying in tandem.
That bird thing at the top of the picture isn’t actually a bird. It’s a kite about the size of your hand.
