Just had breakfast with my host family. Chao fan, mian bao (with peanut butter, jelly and nutella (I think they are specially catering to American tastes)) milk and orange juice. Fanny was still in bed, but the mom and dad tried to teach me how to properly use chopsticks, which ended with fumbling and stabbing my gums.
Later. We went to the Summer Palace! The weather was cold and the palace and lake were beautiful.
At one point I thought my host mother had called my host father retarded, then I realized she had just told me he was going to the toilet.
We met my host sister then went to a Japanese restaurant for lunch.
The sushi tasted so good and familiar, like the sushi from the restaurant near the REI in Salt Lake.
Favorite question of the day (in Chinese of course): "You eat fruit, don’t eat meat, right?" "Yes." "Do you eat garlic?"
