While Tim was hard at work teaching incredible wisdom to his students today, Sue went out to see the sights by herself!
The first thing she noticed was the newspaper spread out at the bus stop, ready for public consumption!
... and here we are at the entrance to Baoshi Hill, right in the center of the city! There are many respites from city life sprinkled around the city.
Baoshi Hill means 'Precious Stone Hill', because there are large free standing meteorites viewable on top of the hill, and other precious materials that were found.
There's a beautiful temple on the other side of the hill called Ma' nao temple that was originally built in the year 946. It was destroyed and then rebuilt again in the Qing dynasty.
Love the Dragon's Back wall!
There are street sweepers everywhere picking up trash and leaves. There are no leaves or pieces of litter on any of the bigger city streets, making things very clean looking.
If you didn't look closely you might think this is a BMW.
But alas, it's a BYD!
We met Lauren tonight, another teacher that had gone through the Colorado China Council (pictured below in white). We went out to a lovely dinner with Lauren, and her friends Anya and Judy, who are also English teachers.
Meanwhile, Tim enjoyed another teaching day where he taught for 4 hours. Tomorrow, Tim interviews another "ayi" to help with cooking, etc.
