Once again I met up with Jewel. She has become my main contact to assist with trips around the city or to get a quick bite to eat. This time I was introduced to her roommate, Chong. She speaks very good English and was able to translate if there was any confusion in our discussions with Jewel. We spent most of the night walking around Bai Di Li Road, getting some food and discussing music and movies we liked. The majority of the music that is popular in the states is also just as popular here. Artists like James Blunt, Brittney Spears, Taylor Swift, and Coldplay are loved here said Jewel. I found out that the show Friends is really popular here, and that my name is well known as "Rachel's boyfriend". I thought this was really funny. I even tried it out at Helen's that night, any new person that I met or was introduced to by Jewel, could easily remember my name by saying, "Ross, from Friends." We had a great time, and plan to meet again tomorrow for KTV, Chinese karaoke.
