I've just arrived back in Kaifaqu from a few days downtown. First I played journalist, writing quickly while a nice lunch was provided for me. I won't say that I hate being a journalist exactly or even dislike it, but opportunities for a story always come at a bad time, it seems—in the middle of busy weeks, for example, as now. Then I trained a new teacher and played substitute at our downtown school today. I forget how much more I like being in the classroom.
