We had a very busy weekend:
as always kids had dance classes, but this Saturday was also June 4th -
the Tiananmen 天安門 'incident' anniversary. Chinese writer-disident, Bei
Ling 貝嶺, who is living now in Taipei and whom we know, has organised an
art instalation/happening entitled "1001 chairs for Ai Weiwei 艾未未". Ai
Weiwei is a Chinese artist who, on the way to Taiwan last year, was
stopped at the Chinese airport and detained. He is still being held
without a trial. The happening was interesting, but hasn't drown a big
crowd. But still - kids and Tim got to the front page of the newspaper
Sunday after church we had friends over for lunch and afternoon tea.
They will be leaving Taiwan soon and going to Canada. We will miss them
On Monday was a holiday - Dragon Boat Festival 端午節 so it was a great day
to organise a big Polish-Taiwanese party at our place. Again we were
saying good-bye a our friends who will be moving to Australia. The
weather was really hot and sunny - just right for a garden party. Kids
had a blast playing with water and adults were trying to catch up
Today we should have gone back to our schooling
routine, but ... somehow neither kids nor I felt like doing too much.
Zosia worked a bit on her new geography project and math, and Jas has
done some English, Chinese and continued work on the car project.
