I was amazed to find earlier in our visit to Tianjin that the hotel has two movie channels that are in english. Both of these tend to play older movies, 5-15 years old, but there are a lot of memorable films they play. Over the last very days I saw all or parts of: Ronin, Heat, Air Force One, The Lost World, Click, The Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Dracula and AI, just to name a few. For dinner Mike, Joe and I went next door to a very elegant korean BBQ restaurant. The food was excellent even though we really didn't know what we were getting ourselves into. For the most part the language barrier is becoming less and less of an issue as we have learned to point and use body language to navigate daily tasks.
