After we all said our farewells to all of the students that joined us from Nankai University, it was time to board the train and head to Suzhou. Some may have had a miserable trip, while others may have had a decent trip. I was glad Vince brought some entertainment on his laptop, such as that 70's Show, The Office, etc. After the full 13ish hours of train riding, we finally arrive at the Holiday Inn in Suzhou.
Right when I arrive, I had to take a shower. After that, I head up to the dining center to get some breakfast. As soon as I take a seat, I am greeted by Ellen Zhang, the reservation supervisor of this hotel. In our discussion, she asked where I was from in Chinese, but I immediatedely said "whoa boo shwow zhongwen", which means I don't speak Chinese. She then felt bad at talking to me in Chinese first, but I kept telling her it is completely okay. This shows how hospitable the Chinese are anywhere, trying to take care of guests before themselves in this type of work environment. I will edit this post later as our room's ethernet cord isn't working and my battery is dying. Good morning from Suzhou!
