We are all waiting for the Government to announce whether the schools will remain closed for a week or more. So far it’s all being manageable because the pollution was not too dramatic. I could take the kids for a bike ride 1h a day with the masks, in between homeworks.
The British School has been sending great quality homework for the my Year 3 and Year 4 children. Yet, I don’t know who suggested that the children should have homework in Physical Education and dance (I guess all the teachers have to justify their salaries?). Seriously, who would want to practice jumping and running when the pollution is so high?
The city is again swallowed by the monstruous grey and orange clouds. Forget the bikes, we are stuck at home, air cleaners full blast. At least we have the option of moving out for a little while. Most of the Korean mums have moved back home with their kids, as well as Singaporian.
I am considering a move with the kids for the next week: Not too far as I don’t want to deal with European winters and jetlags again, not too close as we don’t want to take the risk to be stuck in a neighboring country suddenly “blacklisted” by the Vietnamese authorities.. Maybe Tokyo? I so wished we were near NYC or San Francisco !
Where would you go for a week? Where the kids can get moving and breath properly? Isnt it insane to even ask the question? What a compelling time we are living in !
