Making Dumplings

One afternoon I went over to my friend Altair's house to learn how to make dumplings. His mom walked me through all the steps and I wrote down all the ingredients, so hopefully I can replicate them soon here in the U.S.

Playing With Glow Sticks

I had some left over glow sticks from a Christmas party some of the foreign teachers threw so I brought them over to the bike shop and we toyed around a little.

Shida Campus 2 (师大二校区)

Building B where I taught 4 classes a week Spring semester.

Studying …

The classroom where all my Campus 2 classes were taught.

This is Shanxi Normal Universities 2nd Campus, its about a 20 minute bus ride (or 20 minute bike ride as well, which was my preferred mode of transportation) away from the main campus.. The facilities over there are not as nice and the students scored lower on their entrance exams so they have to pay higher tuition. I taught there twice a week during the spring semester, two back back classes each day.

PS I wasn't able to post for a while because I was doing a lot of traveling around. I'm now back in the US indefinitely and will be floating around for a few weeks, but I'll try to keep posting when I can. Thanks for looking.
