Welcome home!

After a 22 hour journey from Portland we arrived to our new home in Tianjin. We were kindly greeted by the headmaster and his wife who ushered us into our new apartment, and new it is! Never lived in and a nice blank canvas for us to make into our own. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a ‘balcony’ like a mini conservatory and a small laundry room. We were set up with basics like bedding, towels, a kettle, tea and more. For a start we’ve been able to unpack our cases and we have set up the home comforts we love. We were extra pleased that for our first day today we don’t have to report until 2! So until then we will be unpacking and possibly checking out the local area.
