The Prof asked the students in the class who were in his lab group out to eat afterwards (which I thought would be really weird at 11PM. morning was much better) and we went with his family to a nearby Hunan (his home province) restaurant. It was pretty delicious. I love the Chinese charing method of eating, so you can try 12 different dishes instead of just one. And you don't even have to scoop a bunch on your plate. You just take bits with your chopsticks directly from communal plate to your mouth. It's so simple. Hopefully no one has mono.

Apparently not that different
I had a Wastewater treatment test today in Chinese. Last week in class, I thought the teacher said the test was Saturday at 9PM. I thought, whoa that's really weird, but hey, this is China. Anything is possible. So I had made plans for this morning and afternoon, and was putzing around at 9AM when I got a call from my classmate asking why I wasn't at the test. Everyone was amused that I thought they would schedule a test for 9PM.
