Weinan Teachers University 50th Anniversary ( 渭南师范学院 )
Last week Weinan Teachers University (B’s university) celebrated it’s 50th anniversary, and celebrate they did. B and I went along with our cameras, but we were met with a huuuuge crowd. Luckily I’m acquainted with the head of the school’s dance society, who would be heading up lots of the performances of the night. With backstage access secured, we enjoyed the show and took plenty of pictures…

Partial Eclipse Fuping Weinan Shaanxi China
So, in my last post I alluded to this. On the way home from Fuping, I was looking at the sun and thinking “that looks a bit strange.” at first I shrugged it off as my eyes going a bit funny… but then it started to look more and more odd, until I realised… it’s an eclipse

Geri's Wedding

On Monday the 2nd of November Geri and her husband got married. I was honoured to be invited, as was my camera. As you’ll know from my coverage of Rob’s wedding Chinese weddings are quite the affair. It started the night before with us going to their new apartment to meet the groom’s side of the family, and generally plan the next day. Myself and B went, and were then treated to dinner with the groom’s nearest and dearest. The next day saw a 5:30am wakeup, for a 6:00am rendezvous, we were collected by minibus and headed to the couples new apartment to again meet the groom…

Oktoberfest in Xi’an

“Cheers!” or “Prost!” as they say in Germany. So, myself, Beryl, Rudy, Joanne and Kai headed to Xi’an for the Oktoberfest held at the Sofitel hotel there. The Sofitel is a totally pimp hotel, and Rudy knows someone who works there, so we got hooked-up price wise, so kudos to him.

So, back at the start of August I got wind of some sort of fashion show happening in the square. Unfortunately that night I had to teach, but I figured I’d go down after work and see what I could see. Armed with my camera; of course.
