The Last Watermelon
Wednesday, October 22, 2008
Today we visited our last university and delivered our last lectures. At our welcome lunch today, Hotel California murmured on the speaker in our private dining room, a tune familiar to me because of my roots and one that struck a chord with my longing to return home after two wonderful but long weeks in China. Our last supper this evening included another extensive spread of food. I think we are all looking forward to returning to a modest way of eating and resuming our daily workout schedules. It will take a while to regain the fitness we first arrived with. Alas the watermelon arrived signifying the end of dinner and the culmination of a groundbreaking trip to build relationships with our kinesiology colleagues in China.
