The View from the Top of Daqing

Last week we managed to take a little trip up the Daqing TV Tower. They had pictures of a few of the world's famous towers hanging in the main entrance. I pointed out the CN Tower to the tour guide and she was surprised to be informed that what she thought was a building in the forground was actually a boat in the Toronto harbour. The picture was pretty grey so I can understand the confusion.

The tower viewing deck was terribly cold but the view was great. We could see almost all of the Daqing. These are some of the best shots. Hope you like them.

The Cold

Okay, so it's cold now. We are now at negative 15 degrees C. Still not snow or frost. Seems a bit odd.

Can't blog from home. I will try to bring some pics in from the past little bit to post from the school.

Application Submitted

Well, good or bad, my Teacher's College Application has been submitted. One always asks himself, "Could I have done a better job?" after submitting a paper, writing an exam or going for an interview. I feel that right now but I put in sufficient time and effort, answered the questions from my heart and did numerous spell checks. Fingers are crossed and breath is held ... until April when I hear back. No use fretting. It's time to celebrate.

Angels in Disguise

You have met Charlie's Angels but sometimes as part of the covert operations they get involved in they need disguises. I am training them well. Here are Helena, Fiona, Amy, and Sherry.

Crazy Maisie - Daqing Cleopatra

This is Maisie. She is my Teaching Assistant for four of my classes. She did a great job of controling the mobs of children.

More Halloween in Daqing

Here are some pictures of the EF staff getting into the Halloween groove. This post is all me. The mummy returns. I have done the mummy thing now at least four or five times. It just keeps getting rave reviews so I keep using it. Hope you like.
