  1. What a lovely thing to do, to host a student. Is ‘hosting’ something you do regularly, because it’s an excellent way of helping students. I’m sure she’ll have a wonderful time in NZ. The dolls are absolutely beautiful, too – certainly something for you to remember your young guest by. 🙂

    1. I started hosting last year. Last year I had a Chinese student for the whole year. This year no long term students came over. This is only a two weeks one. Maybe in July there might be a 6 month one again.

      1. I imagine you get to know the long-term students well. It must be hard saying goodbye when it’s time for them to go home. You’re doing a marvellous job in helping their education along.

        1. Yes we really were like mother and daughter. I also discovered how far apart the Chinese families live. My student hardly ever saw her parents. She had to look after herself since very young
          Japenese are more close to each other

          1. I didn’t realise that about Chinese families. I wonder what the reasoning is behind that. I prefer the Japanese way, myself! Still, it must suit the Chinese way of life, I suppose.

  2. Ja, hul kan baie vriendelik en nederig ook wees. Die kaartjie is mooi. Kry jy darm ‘n paar rand vir jou gasvryheid, of is dit liefdadigheid?

    1. It is! This afternoon she gave me another another gift. A dry “tree” with magic water. In 24 hours time it covers in full blooms! It is already starting to show the flowers. I’ll put it up as soon as it is all open
