Before going into the details of another exciting day at our internships, here is a snapshot from last night. My host mom subscribes to the folk wisdom that walking one hundred steps after dinner makes you live to ninety nine. We headed out by the river, teeming with kids and families out jogging, walking, and zipping around on mopeds. A little further out, a group was starting up the square dancing that we saw first in Anhui. Yesterday we saw an impromptu concert being held under a bridge by the river. It featured accompaniments of some older songs with a saxophone, an acoustic guitar, an accordion, and a traditional two-string instrument called the erhu. Several old folks watching the performance, making it into a round of karaoke.
As for this morning, I was sent off to the bus stop, stomach full of fruits and a red bean bun. I actually arrived early to our office, home to The Nanjinger, an expat magazine. Jessica G and I have been charged with writing articles tackling the tricky topic of Morality. Shortly after lunch and submitting first drafts of our articles, our bosses took us on a field trip to an art exhibit at Chenguang 1865 Creative Industry Park.
