Lunch time

Our welcome lunch was delayed for a variety of reasons. Today, we finally had it. It was well worth the wait.

My boss took us (two foreigner teachers and four Chinese office staff) to lunch at a nearby restaurant. Apparently, this restaurant is next to a hospital where government officials go when they need real medical treatment. The place was very nice--semi-outdoor lobby and large private rooms. Our room had a view of a little lake with some wetland birds flying about (maybe they escaped from the Shenzhen zoo). Of course, the food was also quite good. We had a nice variety of meats and vegetables. Unlike other meals I've had in China, this one didn't involve any organ meats.

Now I can sit back and relax in my office until it's time to go home or until a student comes in to talk (which is usually later in the day).
