Today during before breakfast, my roommates and I overslept! We were supposed to be downstairs at breakfast at 7:30 am but we woke up 7:26 so everything in the morning was a rush. Later on though we explored our village area with Bryce as the tour guide. We went into an embroidery shop called “Happy Embroidery” where we saw some beautiful pieces of art hand-sewn by the ladies who worked there. My favorite one was of the two peacocks. We walked to the town’s square and I ate “Xizhou ba ba” for the first time. It is kind of like a Xizhou version of pizza. There were two options, sweet and salty, I got the salty kind which wasn’t really salty at all so I had to add some salt. When we got back to the Linden Centre, we split up into groups and had rotations, I was doing the bike riding rotation first where Shane and Bryce took Harrison, Audrey, and I down to the lake along with Ms. Stagg. The water in the lake smelled really fresh. When we got back, we had to learn how to do chores around the house. Today was a very productive day for me inquiry project wise. I finally narrowed it down to what I wanted to do. Although I wasn’t feeling up to par, I think overall it was a pretty good day.
P.S. We had a movie night and watched “The Truman Show” starring Jim Carrey and it was really cool.
P.P.S. Today is my friend's birthday, happy birthday!
