-Interesting fact: In Seattle you are thought to be wierd if you use an umbrella in the rain..... In Suzhou if you dont have a pastel colored umbrella or a bright neon colored poncho, you are not only thought to be insane but you get stared at for quite a long time.....
---- However, after some thought it makes sense, the rain in China is definetely mostly acid... awesome....
Also, today we went to the Korean restaurant on campus because they have this pretty awesome egg, tomato and rice dish... however, when we arrived we couldn't remember what it was called. So we explained to the waitress (in chinese of course) that the dish consisted of rice with an egg on top... She got excited and pointed to something on the menu and we not knowing what the characters were anyway said "yes thats the one." Well, it wasn't the one.... and instead we got this dish that comes in a heated bowl with , seaweed, this spicy strange tasting red paste, a cucumber zuchinni like vegetable, mystery meat all topped with a raw egg.... mmmmmmmmm ....... yeah not so much... and potentially dangerous... We went home and memorized the words for egg and tomato, which in case you are interested are jidan (chicken egg) and xihongshi (tomato).
Finally typhoon Wipha has now been downgraded to a tropical storm so it looks like there will be no excitement tonight.
