July 22 Day 55

The past two days have been pretty mellow. Today, we had dinner with Professor Cong, the UCLA programmer for the JRI research institute. After, I tried to look for badminton courts where he and I could play but they were all full.

I bought two books today; Water with elephants, and The Cooking God’s Wife. I plan on reading them on my train ride to Xi’an this weekend. The crappy thing is that this morning at around 8 am, me and Ian went to the train ticket office on campus to buy our tickets because the earliest you can buy them is 5 days in advance. Well apparently, the tickets for the sleepers were all sold out through prior bookings, so all they had left were the soft sleepers or the seats. The soft sleepers were 800+ yuan which was a bit out of our budget range so we had to settle for the seats which were 150 yuan. Hopefully they aren’t too bad but it will definately be an experience.
