MESCA

So, MESCA (Middle Eastern, South & Central Asian Cultural Evening) was last week – it was the first cultural evening of the year (excluding International Cultural Evening) and it was SO MUCH FUN. The MESCA people had been working hard for several weeks to make sure our first proper cultural evening was a great one, and they did a great job!

I don’t have any pictures of the MESCA dinner, unfortunately, but it was really nice – we ate typical MESCA food and everyone dressed in MESCA clothes.

The MESCA people then performed for us – it was hilarious, as expected, and played on many many stereotypes about MESCA people.

They travelled together, to escape Minna's mother, and visited many places together.

We have three more cultural evenings lined up for this school year – APEC (Asia-Pacific Evening of Culture), CCE (Chinese Cultural Evening) and NACE (North American Cultural Evening). ECE (guess what ECE stands for?) isn’t until next year 😦

In other news – China Week is next week, and on Sunday I will be traveling with a group of about 12 to a school in Dongguan to teach English. We have, of course, been loaded with tests and presentations just before this. Everything’s cool now though – the only thing I have left to worry about is China Week preparations.

More news after next week, when I get back from China.

  1. Hei Emma! Takk for interessante “reisebrev”. Håper det går bra med deg i Hongkong og at du trives. Spennende at du skal reise inn i Kina en uke og undervise. Det blir sikkert lærerikt og interessant. Hvordan er skoledagene ellers? Får du faglige utfordringer i hverdagen? Her går det bra. Vi er mye på farten og trives med det. Det blir besøk hos oss på julaften i år. Du er herved invitert. Vi håper du kommer.

    Skal hilse så mye fra mormor. Vi er begge glad i deg og ser frem til å se deg igjen i desember.

    • Hei Mormor og Morfar!

      Det kommer snart (i løpet av neste uke, håper jeg) et innlegg generelt om skolen og aktivitetene her. Vi er kommet oss lenger enn halvveis gjennom semesteret, og dere må tro på at jeg gleder meg til ferie (og til å komme til dere på julaften – jeg takker herved ja til Deres invitasjon!).

      Glad i dere også, vi snakkes snart!
