While in search of some food after our trip to Sea Gull's, a pristine watch making company, Kannetha, Samantha, Brian, Alex and myself found ourselves in Mr. Lee's. It's a Chinese fast food chain that I have seen all over town and seems very popular. We all sat at a table in the middle and the waitress came over to take our order, then things got interesting: I haven't had too much trouble with the language barrier until today. It seemed that each item we would point at, she would flip the pages of the menu and point to something else. It was like a game of tug o' war with this lady. After about a few minutes of struggling, we finally came to the conclusion that since we were pointing to multiple items, she was pointing at platters to save us some money. At least she was looking out for us, street vendors would have taken us for everything we had. Instead of writing the orders on a notepad, she punched them into a little handheld device which totaled up the price as we ordered. No fast food place I have ever been to in America has waiter service, so this was a nice change of pace. My bowl of noodles and chili was divine and after giving our thanks to everybody, we headed back to the hotel.
