Shopping for uniforms and a phone
Today we went shopping for uniforms since Hanxi is going to a private school. She also chose a phone. I was glad to hear of the tracfones that are pre-paid and can be loaded with more minutes or texting by purchasing a card at almost any store. The phone was only $19.95 and the card to add 400 minutes/texts was around $20 also. What a great way for the student to have a cell phone to keep in contact with their American family. It was very easy to set up and to add minutes to the account. Of course, Hanxi brought her own money to buy her phone, minutes, and uniform.
Today we learned that in China, most homes do not have ovens so it will be a novelty to bake here. Hanxi said they live in a very tiny apartment and there would be no room for an oven.
