just a dinner :-)

I went to Chishui to meet a friend and I initially wanted to stay there a couple of days....But I stayed there six. Why? Well, to be honest I was treated as a king or a celebrity, whatever you like to call it. My friend literally dragged me into a typical Chinesse life where a family itself is very important, so I had few lunches with the whole family or drinks with various aunts and unckles, watched their grandma to win some money during the popular "mahjong" game....During the day I  did some sightseeing with Haobo (see the next article with pics), during the evenings I was meeting Haobo's friends....usually in Karaoke Bars (3 times :-) or a Rock Club where I won the whole bottle of Absolut Vodka :-). I was also invited by Haobo's best friend to his wedding which was taking place 3 days after my arrival and of course I couldn't refuse.

The wedding was very funny and I was also asked to make a speech in front of 700 guests. Upssss! I usually hate speeches but this one I really enjoyed :-).... Because the groom is an English teacher there were my of his colleagues present at the wedding and I expressed a wish to go and see a typical lesson at a chinesse school. No problem, they said! The very next morning with a little hangover from the powerfull 52% white spirit "Biujiu" I went to two secondary schools where I had 5 twenty-minutes sessions with students, aged 17-18....I thought I would be only watching but it turned out that I was in the middle of it...Well, I actually didn't care because it was very nice experience and I really enjoyed it....especially students' questions: "Are you married?", Can I shake hands with you?", "What is your view of love???".....?????...:-)..:-)...
