What's happening in Beixing
Phoning my wife last night, I learned that Tony went to bed early. Jenny also, having had to get early for her driving training. So I didn't hear the sound of Tony'a voice.
I wll have to get my tooth looked after on my day off. Last night, I got throbbing pain when I tried to drink some tea. All the day, I had been feeling it. The image of the person's head wrapped in a towel now makes sense to me.
Saturday, I passed Wuxi's two downtown Christian Churches. I can't help but pass the Protestant Church next to our school everyday. However, I rarely get close to the Catholic Church off European street. Doing an Expo English event yesterday, I was across a narrow canal from the second church, entertaining children (I hate other people's children!).
So much media, so little time!
While I do wish Tony and Jenny were with me, I was looking forward to the quiet time to watch some DVDs and read some books. But the problem is I have so much media to consume and so little time to do. I have choice of ten books, twenty podcast, and countless DVDs and only about two hours last night to consume it. What did I look at?
The Life of Emile Zola
I have never quite understood the Dreyfus affair. I know it raised great passions in France at the time, but it is hard, in hindsight, for this Canadian to know why. This Hollywood movie, that I bought cheap at the Nanchang Temple Market, didn't do it. It showed the basic events but it didn't seem a fully enclosed story. It only once brought up the issue of anti-semitism which I understand was a cause of the affair's passion.
