steaks were weird. it wasn't a regular steak cut of meat. and they put this peppery sauce all over it. the sauce was ok but no a1. or crazy johnnie's garlic butter. mmmm. it was also served with spaghetti noodles and a sunny-side up egg. the pizza was also sauceless. but the bread on the table was good.
the locals kept on asking me if i was enjoying the food. i was politely saying it was ok. but it was definitely not american style steaks as the menu advertised. i promised them that as soon as i get my own apt. they can come over for some real western food.
today, i woke up at 2 p.m. despite the persistent sounds of jackhammerings. went to the office for a little bit then got a new sim card. which means i have a new phone number. so for anyone interested in calling me, it's 5827615729. don't ask me why the chinese phone numbers have to be so long. i think from the states, you have to dial 011, then 86 (i think that's the china code) then the city code. i don't know what wuhan's code is. you should be able to find it somewhere online.
afterward, jerome and i walked around wuhan and he showed me the "time square" of all of hubei province. there was a halloween parade. wuhan is definitely a much bigger city than wuxi. the drivers drive much crazier but there are more traffic cops. wuhan was also the first time i've seen a rotary in china. it's similar to the boston ones except they're LABELED. *ahem* of course, i can't read it so it doesn't really matter to me. but in case one day, i lose my mind and decide to get behind a wheel, i'll know which way i'm going for the accident. hehe.
jerome also showed me the yangtze river. he's a philipino, but he's been in wuhan for almost a year so he knows his way around. apparently wuhan is broken up into two districts. the east and west side of the river. and like any good city, the east side doesn't cross over and vice versa. i don't remember the chinese names for them.
