Adventures of a third grader in Beijing for a year. All about having fun in China, the land and its geography, history and politics, and visiting China’s different regions and peoples. Do shadow puppetry, ride a camel in the Gobi, make dumplings on a farm, and cheer for the Guoan (World Peace) soccer team.
The suspense is over the number 1 most popular post is back. So if you are a Montclair person, you must be thinking, “I moved my family to Montclair so my sweet little innocent child could go to a good school. And so my cupcake could have great diversity here.” Well you know what I would think again!!!! At the British School of Beijing most people’s first language isn’t even English!! I have friends here that are really African, no offense to all of you that are African American! So if I made a list of countries you would probably be asleep by the time I finish but I can tell you that there are over 30 different countries. Like a few of these countries that my friends are from: China of course, Taiwan, South Korea, Finland, Argentina, America, France, South Africa, UK (well of course i will say this what school do you think I am in the German School?!?!), Mongolia, Canada, and Germany.
Also Belgium, my friend from Belgium is nicknamed “French kid,” poor French kid. Sometimes when we play rugby people yell, “Go French kid” and he yells, “I’m not French!!!” But I later learned that he is a little bit French.
I’m sorry folks I have to go to bed don’t ask me why but I do so long for now folks, bye bye!!!! (It’s not over yet there will be another one coming up next time and i beg you to like us on Facebook and follow us on coplansinchina.wordpress.com)
