Dining out with the boys (Ray and Ike)The place was beautiful.

~ May 12th ~ Journey Day Seven ~

It was a slow day at work and the day only really picked up once I had come home and Ike offered to take me out to pick up some items. Up until this point I had been frequenting a place that sold baozi because Wei had previously mentioned to the woman if she saw me I wanted two veggie baozi each time. So off I went late into the evening knowing I had a new, nervous and an early teaching start the next day because I was being offered a free ride, free dinner and some quality time with friends Ike and Ray.

Wuhan mall is huge. Let me put it into perspective for some of my friends and family. HUGE! They have five floors and so much to do it’s crazy. I didn’t get to see all of it either.

One of my favourite drinks, watermelon! I'm even fond of the heart shaped straw.
First we ate dinner courtesy of Ike. We had tea, I had a watermelon drink (real watermelon all mixed up to make a drink) some steamed rice and pork, a plant that tasted simply delicious, mushroom soup with every edible mushroom as well as some of my favourite rice.. fried? Or just nicely done.  Either way it was filling and delicious.

Onwards we went to do some shopping. I can’t believe Wal-Mart has made its way to China, but it has. Still, if you’re expecting it to be westernized forget it. They sell chopsticks, they sell fans (I just had to buy one, you know, the hand held ones that have Chinese characters and pictures) as well as an assortment of toys I am sure Canada would never allow. After getting some school supplies I needed (and Ike kindly paid for all this!) shopping was over and it was time to head home late in the evening. Yes, I did buy myself a nice big white towel. I like big towels.. they’re big.

Then sleep soon over took me until day break brought me back…
