Odds and Ends...

Life continues to be full of classes, spending time with the students, seeing new sights -- and taking lots and lots of pictures!! Here's a few more odds and ends...
Enjoying Chinese hotpot. DELICIOUS!

Another view of Taiyuan -- home for the past 6 weeks!

...enjoying a cool treat...

Bicycles are used for everything over here.
Three to four people on a single bike, computers, a goat, chickens, and even a mirror!!

...the countryside...



...preparing for a ride...

The streets of ancient Pingyao city
Playing around with various hats of China!

We've continued having a wonderful time on Thursday nights with hosting an American meal at our apartment for the students, and playing games afterwards. Getting to know them has truly been one of the best things about spending the summer in China. It is going to be hard to say good-bye in less than two weeks!
