Day 2: The Introductory Introduction
Day 2! The Groundbreakers have (quite naturally) alredy begun to fall head over heels in love with absolutely everything Xizhou, from the lovely Linden Centre to Mr. Yang's Golden Flower Restaurant. We began the day with a scrumptious Linden Centre breakfast and some settling in (unpacking). Then, all sixteen of us promenaded around Xizhou, stopping once in a while for one of T's scintillating lectures (boring albeit filled with priceless wisdom). At lunch, Erica, Orion, and I ate at Mr. Yang's famous Golden Flower restaurant and wolfed down the prominent Tai Fei fried rice (name after the one and only Craig Tafel) as well as an egg, tomato, spring onion dish that would make the best steak at the best five hotel on Earth taste like tar. Afterwards, we learned a little about "pitching in" and how to do laundry! The rest of the day was relaxing and fun, exploring the Linden Centre and playing miscellaneous music instruments. After another fantastic meal, we congregated on the terrace and enjoyed the gorgeous Xizhou sunset.
That's all for today readers! Stay tuned for more adventures to come!
