The way the university schedules the students here is very different from how it is in America. It seems that most classes are 100 minutes long with a ten minute break in between. And all the students change classes at the same time. They also eat at the same time, which makes finding food even harder for me. We were fortunate enough to be led to the faculty eating area.
I'm also really enjoying the food here. It's very different from what American Chinese food is like and it's always good. Being somewhat forced to use chopsticks has made me fairly good at using them, I'm even starting to prefer them over forks. The only problem is that even though the food here is great, I can't eat rice and noodles for two-three meals a day. Finding diversity with food is tough around here but I'm still looking. The supermarkets here are also really different. The meat is all out and in the open. They like their meat to be fresh and not preserved. The supermarkets also have live fish tanks and pallets of rice to choose from. I feel like I am adapting well to different lifestyle here but we'll have to see.
