Its back to school. Work awaits and mid terms start next week. We've been cramming, project after presentation, and studying every night.
Every once in a while we go explore a new part of the city, eat something new, or see something that just opens our eyes to the culture difference.
Chinese is getting easier, even though I still don't know a lot of it, when I go out now, I can understand most of the simple conversations that are going on. Getting there!
Here are some pictures of the past few days. It's just about this and that, things I notice and I find interesting. Most I find interesting because its so different to what we are used to.
Pancakes sold outside the front gate of our school. They are delicious and can be filled with egg, sausage, bacon, cheese, and sauces or bananas. Yumm
Gardens around our university. There are gardens and parks everywhere, people can hang out all over and study or just relax.
People's laundry hanging outside stores. This is normal here, laundry is just hung everywhere and anywhere
Nop, its not a side walk here, bicycles and mopeds take up sidewalks everywhere. We get to walk on the streets.
Someone's getting married
I love this sign
Street vendors are everywhere, late night snacks or dinner? Around eleven o'clock everyone gathers here
Almost feels like home :)
At the mall, its the Avengers this time to attract consumers to look at cars
Crabs anyone? Piles and piles of them are stacked in every store, the usual way to eat them here is boiling them and then just eating them like that, usually biting off the shell to get at the meat.
One of our school cafeterias on a slow day, usually this is filled to where one cannot even find a chair to sit at. The food isn't too great but cheap for college kids
Well its back to studying and cramming for the midterms. Wish me luck!
Ill try to get back on as soon as I can and write.
Miss everyone back home, especially that one person in England :)
