Yesterday afternoon, we went to the 'people's square' of Xizhou, which consists of four food vendors, several small restaurants, and a line of shops. Yeah... huge. We ate a local Xizhou pancake thing, which came in two flavors, sweet and saly. The sweet had red bean and rose, the salty has salt, pork and scallion. I also ate noodles, which is the rice cake (nian gao) but in noodle form. We saw a music performance by some Bai musicians. They mainly used stringed instruments, but one of the musicians had a wooden or bamboo flute. One song was accompanied by dancers. For movie night, we watched The Truman Show.
Today, we basically 'adjusted to being in class'. We created a wellness plan, and reviewed what we needed to do for class. My new scedule: Day 1: Math & Science. Day 2: SS & LA.
