What a start!

China!!! It's just been crazy. I must say the orientation days have been an absolute life saver, getting to know people, having a few beers and getting over the jetlag.

BUNAC’s partners have been fabulous - the whole thing has been so much smoother than I ever imagined which can only be down to good planning so thanks a million.

The culture shock has been massive, they really do speak no English, and for an English man it’s really hard because saying it louder and pointing just receives even blanker expressions, he he. I think we are all looking forward to moving on to Harbin now and starting the training. We had a taster with the children today which was amazing - initially the children are reserved but also very curious. They are so cute and playful it put to rest any kind of anxieties we had. All in all a great start. Thanks again.
