so early… The alarm was quite rude this morning, waking us up at 5:45. I suppose it’s upset that we haven’t used it all week. Oh, but it was so nice! We had a great week of rest and relaxation and exploring. The panda reserve was beautiful, our trips to the dish market, music street and the China Post were successful, and we had a great time swimming and playing cards with friends on Friday. This morning, we woke up to find that we had very little water pressure for no apparent reason. Thankfully, it came back on about an hour later. Now I’m working on loading a new phone card. Rather than paying a monthly bill, we buy a 100 yuan phone card and apply the minutes to our phone. This is the first time we’ve had to change it since we arrived, and I’m finding it to be a little "mafan" troublesome.
