It also lifted our appetites. We acquainted ourselves with our 10-bed room, changed into less comfortable but cuter clothing, and set off towards Little Italy and Chinatown, the neighborhoods of the day.
With our stomachs now full, and everyone back in a good mood, we decided to walk off a bit of our meal in Chinatown. With dreams of knock-off designer purses (Come to back room! Come here! Look!), we stopped at nearly every little stand there. We did in fact get a few purses, but we also decided to be a little adventurous and buy random Chinese fruits from the fruit stands and candy from the stores. We had longan, which is similar to litchi, and rice cakes and chocolates and some kind of gummy that I don't really remember too well. We bought pashminas and souvenirs and just generally took advantage of a wonderful night.
We returned to the hostel exhausted and cold down to our bones, looking forward to a good night's sleep.
