Well, today was fun! Met more students and attended two lectures. The first one was very interesting. I never knew about the Chinese version of google, ebay, etc. Also, I found it interesting that the instructor stopped to ask questions only after he was done giving the lecture; something that is different in America. Lunch was also nice. It was fun to be able to mingle with the students and also to mix with the locals rather than be together as a group. Oh yeah, at breakfast this morning, people would just come and sit next to us who we didn't even know. It was pretty cool! I love not having to deal with people trying to sell me everything. I can shop at my own leisure. Also, I walked through one of the street markets after the first lecture we had and the food looked SO GOOD! I am definitely going to eat some of it, if not all. Did I mention lunch only cost about $2.5 US? This place is amazing!
