谢谢 mollymoo!

可是... "加油!"???

Add oil or grease??? You put it with lips, maybe you are suggesting I should wear more lipstick?

Ok, seriously, I have been enjoying the nature pictures. If I didn't have a son, I would stay in a rural part of China to teach, to get to know what it's like. But my son will be too bored and unhappy, so I am choosing a big city for now, so he can have things to do and some conveniences like home, so he will not miss home as much. I don't want to have a miserable teenager on my hands for a year! (and it wouldn't be fair to him). Maybe someday, or maybe after a year in a city in China he will be more willing to go to a more extreme place.

Hehehe... 加油 is kind of like "go for it!" People yell it at sports competitions or say it for encouragement.

Ah! 谢谢 sockmonkey! I bow to your great Chinese skills! (sorry, there is no bowing smiley). Maybe I'll PM you later if you don't mind, I don't want to take up people's posts with questions about you - I'm just wondering things like how well do you speak Chinese, and when (if) you've been there, are you going again, how/where did you learn Chinese, etc. Forgive me if you've already told me some of that. I have a horrible memory.

About NATURE again- That is one thing I'm worried about missing if I live in Beijing. Can anyone tell me some ways to get to nature from there? Like.... I imagine I can take a bus to the Great Wall. Where else can I go to be in some trees or mountains or by a river or something? I've heard you can go "drifting" (rafting in a river) nearby. Is that far, and is it expensive? We will miss nature.

What is Mt Wutai? Is it part of the Great Wall? Or just a plain mountain? Can I go there and walk through some trees, or sit and enjoy the view and maybe fresh air? Can I sit and draw a picture of the scenery? If I did that on the great wall would people think I was crazy? What if I brought some paints and painted some scenery, would they call me a crazy white lady?

Goodnight for now!!!

And is the place for the wisest Buddha's Bodhisattva Mansjusri( Wern Wern Ser Li)
