Several teachers packed into the school van and we went on a quick shopping trip today. For lunch, we went to a place called Noodle King – it’s a chain restaurant here. They serve great food, especially their hand-pulled noodles – delicious. My dad thinks I might have been born with a Chinese stomach because I am enjoying the food and quite frankly, I didn’t know how that would work when I got here.
One thing that I have noticed is that I am definitely a novelty. People stare at me. I would like to think it’s my good looks and killer charm, but I think it’s just because I am a foreigner. Some kids at the Noodle King took my photo – they almost wouldn’t leave me alone – it was quite funny.
I am also attaching some photos from grocery store. It’s similar to a Wal-Mart in that it’s a one-stop shop, but it was fun to see the American items in Chinese. Enjoy!
