Guangzhou Day seven

No plans for today so we ended up going to the mall. I found a pair of running shoes, now I just have to actually go running in them. Not once but at least 3 times a week. I’m giving myself a pass as long as the temperature outside feels over 35 C. We also went to Zoo Cafe. Their cakes are very good, but Dominic didn’t want to try one.

Guangzhou Day six

We have determined that going sightseeing to parks or mountain temples is a bad idea. Since we can only handle indoor activities, today we went to the Western Han Nanyue King’s Tomb Museum on Jiefang Bei Lu. It was a large museum, mostly filled with artefacts from the tomb. We can also walk inside the actual tomb. The tomb is quite small, it’s amazing they fit all the funerary objects in there to begin with. There was also a Western Han themed play room for kids. Definitely worth visiting if you’re in Guangzhou.

Guangzhou Day five

Very humid, so of course we aren’t doing much, which means I am knitting in 45C heat. Still fun though. We went for a walk, got lost, got heatstroke. Not much accomplished at all today.

Guangzhou Day four

After doing nothing yesterday, today we went shopping on Beijing Lu (Beijing Road). We went to pizza hut for supper. We always go to pizza hut at least once in China. Pizza hut is much better in China than Canada, the menu is completely different. Chart two of the Evenstar shawl is going well so far, I’m only about 10% in.

Guangzhou Day three

Today: more rain. So much rain. We are surrounded by sheets of rain.

I finished chart one of my Evenstar shawl, which it seems to me is the simplest chart by far.

Guangzhou Day one

The trip went pretty smoothly, except for some meltdowns (by a toddler, so it is to be expected). We arrived exhausted, of course. I spent most of today jet lagged and so I slept most of the day. I woke up just before supper and Fei had already gone to meet some friends, so we ate supper at the good restaurant near our house with the rest of Fei’s family. Daphne…

Guangzhou Day two

Almost no websites work for me, so I find myself being a lot more productive. For instance, writing this journal, and I got some knitting done. Since it’s 45 C here, I thought bringing the aran weight sweater I was working on a bad idea. I brought my evenstar shawl instead. I’m glad that I did. I just began chart 1 and I love the yarn, blue moon laci in ghillie dhu. I apologise for the dark photos, we had the tail end of a typhoon today, so little natural light and my flash is so horrible that if I had used it, the photo would be of a very brightly glowing white blob floating in space.

Why I’ve been absent … kind of

So, 2014 is the year of big changes, mostly awesome, I have to say.  I’ve been feeling like my life is on hold all this past winter, mostly because I can’t wait for the house to be finished and life as a homeowner to begin.
