Not everyone has mastered the use of chopsticks, but He Laoshi told us we will get some more practice in class later on.
The meal was a great opportunity to get to know our fellow travellers better. Over dinner we discussed classes, hometowns, escalating tensions between the U.S. and China, and former traveling experiences. It's safe to say we're all excited about the trip - I'm just hoping we can all find acceptable things to eat when we're there.
I took a little video of the buffet line. This just proves I need to work on my videography before the trip begins. I'll try to find more interesting subject matter, too, like students describing their experiences rather than simply dishing food onto their plates.
