China: Day 2

What an amazing second day. Today was all about acclimatising before we deliver a presentation on technology at Fair Oak Junior School tomorrow. Acclimatisation was slightly interesting, as our venue for breakfast was KFC! After our ‘breakfast’ we went into Futian to look around the shops. The shopping area was huge - and consisted of malls and market stalls. One stall was particularly fascinating - see picture below of Mrs Tuxford and Miss Coxhead! Having worked up an appetite (or the case of some), we went for a more ‘traditional’ lunch. We enjoyed food from the Hunan area; it was much spicier than the Cantonese food we had yesterday. After lunch we went for a hike in Lianhuashan Park and saw the famous statue of Deng Xiao Ping. From the top of the park, we had a glorious view of Shenzhen - which really is a quite spectacular city with a population of 12.4 million people.  As we were walking around the park, it was great to talk to our Chinese guides about teaching and learning in China - and I really cannot wait for tomorrow, when we present to the Bao’an Education Bureau and visit schools in the district.


For dinner this evening we had a fusion of Cantonese and Hunan food - and I tried to master my nonexistent chopstick ‘skills’.  Afterwards, we worked through our presentation for delivery tomorrow.
