One of the fruits we really love here is the pomello; basically a giant oversized grapefruit. For each section of the fruit, like you'd find in an orange or a grapefruit, you peel away the thin white skin. On an orange you eat this part; on a pomello you peel it away and only get the pieces of citrus inside. It's delicious! It takes me 2 to 3 sittings to eat a whole pomello; they are quite large, and we all love them!
The Chinese Medicine doctors expound their healing properties as well! The pomello has just as many layers on as I do!
Today in class I wore 2 shirts, 2 sweaters, a sweatshirt and a coat, plus long underwear. I was warm but felt so stiff under all of that clothing!
Tonight, Sue could not get warm. I had my arm around her and I could feel her shivering! So she got the comforter off of our bed and wrapped up in it. Eventually her body heat took over. It's somewhere in the mid 50's in our apartment and the small space heaters are having a hard time keeping the cold out!
Sue got onto the field with her art teacher, Jin to check it out. We may play some soccer there tomorrow but we will have to share it with the goats!
Today they took the scaffolding off of our building! We hope this means they will hook up our air conditioning unit soon so that we'll get real heat.
