No Smoking

We’re still a little stumped by this one.  About 8 #cigarette holders were on the table, filled with water and #nosmoking signs🚭.  

Ok, I get the ‘no smoking’ 🚭. . . . but then why put out 8 cigarette holders🚬 at all???  If to SAY no smoking, wouldn’t one do the job?πŸ˜‚

They took up a lot of table space, and we were all just rather perplexed 😜

Last Day!

#LastDay at Hammond Hall (Building 15) here in my university in #Zhengzhou #China.  Taught here for 3 years – 8am Monday my first semester to 10am Monday my last semester 😭❀ I’ve had so many beautiful, kind, wonderful #students here and made the best kind of #memories.  

This summer, I intend to move to a new #province and a new university. πŸ˜ƒ Sadness today, but great excitement for the future!

Korean BBQ sauce!

πŸ˜‚ Travel #Miscommunication – I asked a local importer if he could help me find #BBQ sauce, knowing that #HuntsBBQ is in a lot of places here.  He said ‘Sure!’  A couple days later, they told me my sauce was in and I came to find this – #KoreanBBQ sauce 😜 Also delicious! Just not what I was thinking.  One of the fun parts of travel – We have different views of food vocabulary πŸ˜„

Happy Meetings, Bittersweet Separations

My students returned to school today for graduation photos.  They do not take classes their final semester, so most already have jobs, internships, etc.  Some are already leaving for grad school!  I’ve known them for 3 years – love them so much! 

In our university, students don’t pick their classes.  Everyone in their class takes the same 10-11 classes together each semester.  Then they share a dorm.  So all 60 students in her class (Finance 1, 2013) have been together pretty much 24 hr a day for 4 years.  Making great memories, but sad goodbyes.  

#Foodie Favorite

Ooh. . . . Seaweed Chips!  πŸ˜‚ The perfect junk food.  They have the weirdest Types of chips here – no BBQ or Chedder Sour Cream.  Nope, It’s Seaweed, Green Tea, Squid, Roasted Lamb, Hot Pot, and Yoghurt
