Hey! So I am back to write again here in the blog. I missed writing and sharing with you about some places I have been and some moments of the ordinary, the small realities.
Still in Shanghai, China, and I love it. Now that I am here for a little bit more than a year, I am much more comfortable with the city. I can tell you that, as I go around the city with my electric bike with ease!! Took time for me to feel at ease with this bike, since I am not use driving a two-wheel except bicycle (this electric bike looks and almost as heavy as a motorbike). Also the city is so big, and I was afraid to get lost, worried to enter the wrong lanes, and my zero capabilities of Chinese. And with the comfort of taxi and metro that are so easy to take…why bother.
I still don’t know many of the roads…but now I am at ease with the bike, with the road, with how the people driving here and of course realizing that I can stop and look at the map from my phone every now and then (yeah, I know! where have I been!?) and to keep few of 20 kuwai in my pocket in case I got stop by the police, and need to pay some fines! so far so good…
I learned something I really enjoy today. Pottery! I have been thinking about trying it for some years.. And finally did it with some friends, it was really fun thing to do on the weekend.
And, it was not as difficult as I thought. Quite fast in fact. We can do whatever we want. Well, of course the teacher gave some ideas and samples to follow in the beginning, and some instruction and support every now and then.
I was aiming to make two cups. Hopefully when it is finish, it still looks like cups. The next class I will learn how to color or paint these cups. I’ll let you know next week!
