On Wednesday, they burned leaves. On Thursday, they burned…I don’t know, but something inorganic. Maybe rubber. It was awful.

Besides the smoke and occasional choking, the weather was beautiful. Breezy, sunny, and cooler and drier than the preceding few days.

I had my first lesson with my new Mandarin tutor named Alice on Thursday evening. She’s young, perhaps in her middle to upper twenties, and very attractive. She was wearing a knit mini-dress and high heel booties, so she’s stylish. AND she greeted me with soft serve ice cream in a cone! What more could you ask for in a tutor?! Speaks English quite well and with a British accent. The lesson went well and I look forward to the next one.
