Alpaca, All Packed

Just over a week ago we had the World Scholar’s Cup at Green Oasis. For most of this semester I have been coaching the twenty-four students in Years 5 and 6 who were going to take part in this competition. It is a rather academic mixture of general knowledge quiz, essay writing challenge and debating competition. 

All of the students who took part in the WSC were given an alpaca. They had to promise to be good alpaca parents, to look after their alpacas properly and not eat them. I was also given a small alpaca, but it looks as though he is going to be left behind in China. I know a little girl who would be a good alpaca parent.

Judy and Wyatt, two students from my own Year 5 class, did rather well and of course I was very pleased about that. What was not so good was that it went on (and on) and in fact I did not get home on the Friday night until 9pm. After a long week of school, that was tough.

Yesterday the man from the AGS freight company came to our apartment, to give us a quotation for the stuff that we want to send to Bulgaria. Okay, so we do have quite a lot of odds and ends, including Irisha's electronic keyboard, but he quoted us 12,000RMB and that was for sea freight. Ouch!
