Also, directions are quite difficult to understand. They want me to go one way, and I go the other. I now am moved like a puppet. "Go here" is followed by someone physically moving me, and I have to hold someone's hand when I'm crossing the street now, too.
Then there is the fan club whenever we do something. Today it was during our Tai Chi class that coincided with half the school's PE class. I'm pretty sure there is nothing physical or educating about watching Americans attempt tai chi. The key word there was 'attempting.' Thank goodness our groupies weren't present to witness the traditional drum dance.
Other than feeling like a classic tourist, China suits me well. I'm a big fan of anything spicy and I have an obsession with tofu. It's a perfect fit! No offense to my mother who I know is reading this, but if I could take one thing back it would be the food.
