I think that the instructions and the title of this post gives you an idea of what happened on Saturday afternoon! A bunch of us Newbies were all sent off in small groups to fulfil as many things as possible within 2 hours... in 38 degrees and humidity of 85%!! So that was an added part to the challenge - luckily there was food and drink awaiting at the finish line. A great way to see part of the city, as for us living nearer the school - we had only been bused in for our medical and IKEA trip earlier in the week. The pictures are much better than reading - winners of the challenge are yet to be announced! Matts rendition of the Champions League theme outside of the Opera House has to be a particular highlight of the afternoon (can't quite work out how to put that on here- sorry)!!
Saturday then carried on well into the early hours with current staff joining us for drinks and our first visit to a Karaoke Place: K-TV. Amazing place on a floor in an unassuming high rise building, where you have your own private room for your party! Then after experiencing my first proper karaoke, we got a taxi ride home for the first time and visited MacDonalds for some early hours food! All in all, a GREAT first proper night out...not so sure about the singing, Wannabe by the Spice Girls, will never be the same again!
First scenes of the Guangzhou skyline
The Canton Tower in the first picture, should be in the background...need to improve on the photography!
