I just moved to Tai'An and had no job. My recruiter hired too many people and I was the last to show up. So, she gave all of my classes away. I was effectively placed in a holding cell, which is my boss' extra apartment. It was beautiful with a huge kitchen, but I was bored. I did one restaurant review with Jerry, my temporary roommate. He didn't have a job either until Oct. 8, when he moved to the medical college in town. I was supposed to be working at Shandong Economic and Finance University, but that job was given away to someone else also.
Anywho, in the morning, I got myself a new SIM card and phone number (with data plan!!!) so that I could use the share bikes and Chinese Uber. Maybe even a couple of maps every once in a while. I had nothing to do all day so I walked the 6 km down to the temple. I spent the rest of the afternoon poking around at really old statues and tombs, which reminded me of Athens.
