Like I was bit by a tiny vampire. But all it shows is that I am perfectly health. I am sitting here in the lobby of the extended stay hotel, listening to some sad love song in Chinese; smelling cigarette smoke. It is quite a bit different than back home. (Luke says hi, by the way).
But back to the holes, the first time was before I left and let my stepmom stick a needle in my arm and draw my blood. And the second time was here in China. Since we came here to help work in a diner, we need to get health cards. Everyone here who works in a place that deals with food needs to get one, to make sure that they donâ€™t have any serious diseases. Kind of an interesting thought.
But I am healthy, and I passed. And when I get home I will finally find out what blood type I have.
Tomorrow is going to be a long day. Tomorrow is the day that the diner opens. But also the first day that they are going to be open for lunch to the public. And it is the day that 70 some odd lunches need to be made for a school. It is just going to be one long day. I will write another email when it is all over. Good night.
