Today was an awesome lecture. Professor Li Yuelin was by far my favorite. Her style of teaching did resemble that of an American professor. Little did I know, she taught in the US for 5 years or so. That was pretty refreshing, although I have to say I've seen teaching styles mirrored here in that of teaching styles in the US. That was one thing that I was actually wondering about. There isn't really a distinct difference in teaching styles from here and the US. My theory was then reinforced when Professor Li Yuelin said she didn't notice the difference either. For some reason I felt like coming half way across the world would make a 100% difference in everything. The truth of the matter is that people in China do many things that we do in the US. We may do it with our own different quirks and nits, but all in all, we do the same things. We study, we party, we laugh, we sleep, we create and destroy. That's something everyone can learn from this trip. We may be half way around the world, but at the root of everything, we're all still human and do essentially the same thing.
