Today we went to Zhe-Jiang University. We were given a presentation by one of the MBA professors than two women in my group along with LBL gave a short presentation about Simmons. This was the first time were we given the opportunity to talk to other MBA students here in China. After the presentations we took a walk of their campus which was huge. There are over 40,000 MBA students in their program and have five campus in the city of Hangzhou, so needless to say their campus was huge. It was also very tranquil, there was a large lake in the middle of the campus with lots of grassy areas to sit under a tree and read a book. I made friends with an older Asian man and chatted as we walked around the campus.

For the first time we had a free afternoon. Most of us had plans to go to the Tea Museum but later discovered it was 45+ minutes away from our hotel. We ended up just chilling in the hotel room for a while than going to a shopping area that had 200+ shops for women and only 3 shops for men. We had some very interesting experiences. The first was when one of the girls was trying to buy something for her sister who was a smaller size and the sales women wouldn't let her buy it because it was not her size and kept taking the dress away from her. The second time was when I walked into what I thought was a bag shop and started trying to pick them up and asking the price before realizing it was a shoe shine/repair shop. Next we went back to the hotel and had pizza hut for dinner. It was nice to finally have some free time.
