Spring?

It is freezing and not like spring at all.  It is very cold and right now the temperature is 2 degrees.  Too cold for me but I must go out in it. 

Normally I have only one class on Tuesday, which I have done, but I have two extras this week, as I missed them last week attending my compulsory government medical check.

In Chinese schools there is no heating - certainly not at the college/university/high school where we are.  We teachers are lucky to have heating in our rooms.  Even the students dormitories do not have any heating.  The best they can do is a hot water bottle.

Very spartan conditions for the students who have 43 lessons a week.  They do it tough in some ways here in China.
