Christmas is officially over and it’s back to studying, but that doesn’t mean that things are boring, oh no, every day offers something new.
Yesterday me and Liza were walking on the street when someone suddenly opend a window and threw something out all over us and before I had time to ponder what it was, Liza screamed; -It’s nails!!!! Someone had just thrown freshly cut nails all over us. I panicked and started to brush it off, but when we got back home I found leftovers in my hoody and in my pockets. That was not a nice experience, let me tell you that. A lot of stuff has happend this week, for a example; There was a kidnapping at KFC. Apperently a van pulled up, three masked men ran in, grabbed someone and ran out. The newspapers barely acknowledged this, like this is something that happends everyday. I wonder how I would have reacted if I had been there, I probabaly would have been too shocked to do something.
We made another visit to IKEA and when we were eating in the restaurant, suddenly there were people fighting. People fighting in IKEA, makes you wonder what they were fighting about, maybe someone took someone’s pancakes? Stuff like this just doesn’t happen in Sweden. I wrote before that I thought the chinese hardly ever show emotions, I have been proved wrong, if anything they love put their emotions on display, like fighting in IKEA, arguing over a reciept, arguing with the bus driver, talking loudly over the phone etc. For a Swede this can be quite straining sometimes, we are used to things being a bit more quiet. I must say though, it does provide entertainment and I act just like everyone else here, I stop what I’m doing and whatch with great interest, shame on me.
Some of my friends are going to the city Haerbin to visit the Ice Festival. In Sweden we have the Ice Hotel in Jokkasjärvi, in Haerbin they have a whole city of ice. Haerbin is quite far up north and it can get quite cold, -30 degrees is not uncommon, but the festival is supposed to be a sight for the eyes. I feel I have to study for the final exams, so I’ll remain in Tianjin, however, once the exams are over it would be fun to go on one final trip.
