I’m still in Hubei on business. I’ve been here for almost a week. Despite all the warnings I got that Hubei (and especially Wuhan, which I haven’t been to yet) is like an oven, it’s been refreshingly cool the whole time I’ve been here. It’s because of the rain (typhoon?), I guess. It’s been a great break from Shanghai’s muggy heat.
I am still looking for a teacher trainer, but I’m having a lot of trouble accessing my e-mail from Hubei, so it’ll be a few more days before I can reply to e-mails about that.
