Yesterday morning at 6:00 am, I arrived at the airport in Munich. The flight from Beijing was this time less fatiguing. They showed “Inception” what entertained me a lot. Furthermore I had a nice Chinese man sitting next to me. And I could also catch some sleep.
This Blog won’t be updated for an uncertain time. Maybe it will change its purpose in the future.
I thank everyone, who has read my entries and has looked at my pictures.
I also thank the people from Qingchuan, who have given me this unique experience.
This morning I take the train to Beijing. That means I have to say goodbye to lovely Sichuan. My train takes about 26 hours until it arrives its destination.
Do not want.
We took the train to Chengdu, it was the fast one, which brought us in 15 hours nearly 2000 km to the west of China. The cabin was surprisingly comfortable. But I couldn’t find much sleep anyway. Our “cabin mates” turned out to be very friendly to us.
When we finally arrived in Chengdu Maria’s and my path divided. We both got picked up by our teachers and they brought us to our schools. Maria’s is located near Chengdu (about 70 km south-west) and mine is 350 km north.
The accommodation is ok. It seems that the construction of the interior has not been fully completed. Pictures will follow soon, until I have a regular internet access…
I also was shown the school, where I’m going to work. The students are very shy but also very interested. Their behaviour is just cute!
Very spiritual sightseeing today: at first we visited a buddhist temple, then we explored the Temple of Confucius. After that, delicious food.
The Forbidden City was very impressive; a whole city within the city. Huge squares and enormous halls for the emperor.
