Night with the locals
In our last friday night in Tianjin I got to experience even more new things. First off many of the students were buying fresh meat to be cooked over the grill. Andy was nice enough to let me try some chicken which was amazing. It is something that the United States should try doing more. That is a cheap snack which can be cooked fast and right in front of you and taste amazing. But after eating that i walked over to some of the locals that were sitting next to the grill. They were drinking and socializing very similarly to what we do in the U.S. Since only one could understand some english and the others could not really understand any at all Angel was nice enough to interpret for me. We had some great conversations about similar topics i would talk about with friends at home such as basketball. She was also nice enough to translate that i was very appreciative of their time and they expressed the same to me. Overall the people in this city are very caring, considerate, nice, and welcoming to us americans. It only helps me love this country more and more. It is just amazing how we are treated for not ever meeting these people before. I wish it were as easy in the U.S. and people were to have a more Chinese mindset of we not I.
