13 June 1953, Saturday
At 9 in the morning, team leader Wang called the first member
meeting. He explained the importance of our work and urge
us to endure the harsh condition overcome the difficulties,
make an effort to finish the task earlier that scheduled.
All the people previously left in Qingdao have gone to the
frontline, except five girls working at their post there.
Some go to bridge
factory, some to construction company and others to the
No.1 Engineering Sector.
At three in afternoon, we arrived at High Official Village
and settled at a primary school which will be our office
during the day and our dormitory at night. The students just
took a summer vacation, therefore we must finish our job
and vacant the place in one month before they return to school.
The living condition here is a bit better than in Blue Village.
We can have our daily meal at No.1 Engineer Team's canteen.
A group living in which people do everything together and
look after each other is very interesting. Although life
here is harsh, but the team leader Wang said this is a good
opportunity for us to grow personally. I will take this challenge
and make myself more adaptable to all different conditions.
