Where I stayed
On another note, we also found the perfect place for dinner. On campus there is this tiny restaurant tucked in a small alley. We sat down at this table to be greeted by a tiny boy in a spiderman t-shirt. He couldnt stop staring at us, though refused to talk. He was ADORABLE. However, the most amazing part was across from the table they were making the noodles fresh. We all ordered noodles, saw him make the noodles, cook the noodles and then serve them to us. I am not sure I have ever had food that was this fresh. The best part was this HUGE bowl of noodle soup with beef was only 4 kuai, which is $.53. AMAZING.
Also, today was the first day of classes. It was not as bad as I was expecting. Though of course it was all in Chinese and I feel like I only understand about %25 of what they said to me. Including what the homework is..... oh well. Both of my teachers were super cute. The second teacher, was a little peppy girly girl with a high pitched voice that giggled after most of what she said. Also interesting she was wearing a shirt that said "Guaranteed %100 Pennsylvania. AMAZING. My class has one Japanese student one German student and the rest are Korean; who apparently do not have the same classroom etiquette. Cell phones went off consistently, they yelled across the room to each other and just got up and left the classroom. It was quite strange.
Anyway, now that my first class is taken care of and I have found my coffee shop I am feeling much more at home! YAYAYAYAY!
