Yesterday we had a lot of fun; I don’t know if anyone heard, but, I bowled a 211. The combination of imbibing at Golden Hans (a German-themed, Chilean-style, Chinese food restaurant) and taking my shirt off while bowling probably had a lot to do with it.
Today it was extremely hot, somewhere around 96 degrees. It drove me to get a new haircut. Leon helped me out and told the guy how short to cut it. Hopefully when we go for our business visit tomorrow the forecast is correct at 84.
Today we visited a stainless steel processing facility and a vehicle seat manufacturer. The seat manufacturer, TJ-Kahuo Automobile Decoration Company, gave us hats and some literature about their facility. They manufacture directly for Toyota --from the size of the headliners and trunk liners, Corollas and smaller. The place was very cool; they manufactured the foam from a combination of chemicals out of a bunch of barrels. Tomorrow we visit the Tianjin Economic Development Area and the Coca-Cola Company.
We went to a very cool bar last night and a wonderful American restaurant this evening. It was named Hank's, and is run by Hank, from the looks of it an ex-marine who moved here to start his own business. Wes and I almost missed class this morning, we have been relying on other people to wake us up this trip so far, but no one did today until 10 minutes before class. It worked out though, Leon got us up and we got there only 2 minutes after 9:30. We have made arrangements for tomorrow morning.
