Tomorrow is my last day teaching in China. I have to say that I am very sad to leave my students. Although frustrating that so much of what I say is not understood, we have created a bond. They are great kids and I am going to miss them.
As I told each class that I wasn’t going to be coming back in January, after blank stares and then a slow understanding of what I meant dawned, they started coming up and giving me hugs and taking out their phones for photos. It was a calm and near silent goodbye, but lovely none-the-less.
Here are a few parting shots.
Now on to the next adventure.
