The room was clean and comfortable, but the tub drained so slow even for a shower you ended up with several inches of water in the bottom. Very nice getting two bottles of water a day complimentary.

The café had a funky antique look and played classic love songs like "Unchained Melody" ...

In short, I felt that the people who attended this language corner were really eagar to improve their Mandarin and didn't care about your skin colour, so long as you had decent English or some decent experiences to share with them about life abroad that was enough and I felt thankful to them for showing me that not all Chinese are weird, unlike the ones that I'd met (barring my language partners and my students from Yangshuo), I'd almost ...
... from both sides to keep the ball moving. Very interesting.
I mostly talked with Trevor and Tess and we left around 10:15 to make sure we didn't miss the metro which closes at 11:00 PM. Along the way we stopped and got some icecream. I got the starcrunch one again, very good.
At home I quickly passed out, this time facing away from the window with the curtain closed.
