Shopping and a Chinese Stomach

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!
