    Today is weekend, we go to the suburb enjoy a  hot spring :D
    Now is the coldest day of the year in Beijing.(Although this year are not particularly cold, don't know whether because of the greenhouse effect.)Hot springs is a good choice.
   
   
    In the indoor has swimming pool, gym and other recreational activities, such as playing ping—pong.
    There are a lot of hot spring pools in outdoor.They are different.
    My favorite is the pool of bubbles.Here is very warm and fun. I want to take other friend next time to play together.
    Then we went to eat buffet dinner, my sister let me choose food,I found my favorite carrot cake, finally to eat it, the taste is great! :p
    The night we went to the hot springs, but because it was too dark didn't give me a nice photo.
      It's been a nice day~

Beijing, China - 20th January 2014

By: papa_always

Paul and I went to China national grand theatre the opera today.
    Let me introduce China national grand theatre.
   
    The National Grand Theater is built in the shape of a shell. The whole building measures 46.68 meters in height and the deepest part built underground measures 32.5 meters in depth. The theater is more than 600 meters in circumference and surrounded by a man-made lake that covers an area of 35, 500 square meters.
  The opera hall is the most important part inside the theater. It is painted mainly in the color of gold and can seat 2,398 people.

Painted in white, the concert hall gives the public an impression that it is an elegant building with a high-class taste. The music hall can seat 2,019 people and will be mainly used for performing symphonies and Chinese folk music.

 
And there is the drama hall for displaying stage plays and dramas. The hall can seat 1,035 people.

The National Grand Theater can provide first-class services for artists and musicians. There are five places where artists can have their rehearsals, 32 rooms with musical instruments, and 80 dressing rooms. Many dressing rooms are equipped with a bathroom.

The National Grand Theater will become an ideal place for world-renowned artists and art troupes to give their performances. At the same time, China will also try to introduce its local music to the world at the country's grandest music building.

    Paul and I looked at today's opera is 《The Marriage of Figaro》(Le Nozze di Figaro)K.492, is an opera buffa (comic opera) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, with Italian libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, based on a stage comedy by Pierre Beaumarchais, La folle journée, ou le Mariage de Figaro (1784).
Although the play by Beaumarchais was at first banned in Vienna because of its satire of the aristocracy, considered dangerous in the decade before the French Revolution, the opera became one of Mozart's most successful works. The overture is especially famous and is often played as a concert piece. The musical material of the overture is not used later in the work, aside from two brief phrases during the Count's part in the terzetto Cosa sento!

  To be honest I don't understand the opera, I guess Paul did not understand, but we still very happy. :rolleyes:

Beijing, China - 1st February 2014

By: papa_always

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!!! :p :p
Finally to the Spring Festival, I look forward to this day for a long time.

This year we choose to spend the Spring Festival at home.Most of the Chinese people in this day back to home and with family, no matter where he normally work.

My home have a visitor, Hansi from Germany and we spend the holidays together.He has never been to China, feel everything is very interesting.

After we had finished our family reunion dinner, the whole family to watch the Spring Festival Gala.This is one of the Chinese New Year customs.The whole of China all the people in this time of turn on the TV to watch the show.We like to watch the show is crosstalk, like talk show, but usually have a lot of song and dance show, there are a lot of stars.

The TV show end of more than twelve o 'clock at night.Then we go out to set off firecrackers and fireworks.

I think Hansi did not anticipate,  so he 's  very afraid.The sound of firecrackers very loudly, we can't hear other sounds in the outside.Every street in China were put in fireworks fireworks in the same time.The sky was dyed red, and the earth is also red firecrackers, we in the midst of a red.Any time in the seven days of the holiday, people set off firecrackers in the street.

But This year we have not set off firecrackers, because Beijing's air quality is bad this year, to protect the environment, we choose to not fireworks this year.But I can watch the other one  to put fireworks with Hansi.


After the holidays I will go on a trip, so I'm going to visit many places these days, it's really a happy holiday :cyclops:

Kiiminki, Finland - 18th February 2014

By: Tatterdemalion

Hi Mom!

I reached my first host Tuija today! I first arrived in Kajaani but I was sent forward to Kiiminki which is hostmom's childhood hometown. She's visiting there right now and she picked me up from the post office finally on Tuesday evening.

At home she opened the packet a bit so that I could jump out and take a look around. I was warmly welcomed by three other TVs - ladybird HelgaHH, moose Yuma and parrot Prajna. We cut my package open all the way and got out the card and candies you had put in with me. The gifts were much appreciated and I took a bite, too, since I hadn't been able to eat anything during my long journey to Finland.

The rest of the night I spent very peacefully. I played a couple of tunes on a guitar and electric piano, and relaxed in a rocking chair with my new friends. When it was time to go to sleep I snuggled into bed with Prajna - it was her first time in Kiiminki as well :)

Good night mommy! I'm enjoying myself very much here.

Hugs and kisses from your Rachel <3

Hi Mom!

Today I helped hostmom wrapping a gift for her brand new baby niece who is only five days old.
The very same evening we hopped on a train that took us to Nivala, a town 150 kilometres to south from Kiiminki. I'll tell you what it is like there some day this week.. :)

<3 Rachel

Raise the flags!, Finland - 28th February 2014

By: Tatterdemalion

Hi! Today, February 28, is the day of Kalevala and Finnish culture.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZheBelDQeDY/UxiQvJZbfHI/AAAAAAAAAtY/6YjJQyDr9Uk/s1600/IMG_4177.JPG
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-3V52wqpeiFQ/UxiQvLX-nPI/AAAAAAAAAtg/ArKS5Vy4y_c/s1600/IMG_4179.JPG

Kalevala is the national epic of Finland, a compilation of epic poems gathered together by the national writer Elias Lönnrot in the early 1900's. The poems of Kalevala are stories of Finnish folklore and mythology.

We took a little stroll around the town of Nivala. There was just a little bit of snow on the ground because the weather's been comparatively warm for the last week. We've been up to +5 degrees (Celsius).

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-p-IOnSZU9eM/UxiRxM1JqLI/AAAAAAAAAvA/iu_G3HKpxBI/s1600/IMG_4155.JPG
:p

Tonight we'll leave Nivala and return to Kiiminki by car... Let's see if I can share a part of that roadtrip with you :)

Love, Rachel
