A guy named Michael from CSU greeted me at the airport. He had already picked up two other exchange students from China. They were waiting in the van.
Once I got my baggage and got everything put in the van, we headed to the supermarket to get some food to last us the weekend. When Michael drove into the parkcade, the roof of the university's van hit one of those clearance bars that hang from the ceiling. I was laughing--he wasn't. I don't know what the Chinese kids thought, they didn't really say anything
Finding food in the grocery store wasn't too hard. The biggest difference was mostly that the brands weren't the same as Canada, so I really had to look for anything I wanted to find. For the most part stuff was a little more expensive than Canada.
The Chinese students had a hard time finding anything because they not only had different brands, but they barley knew English, and most of the English equivalent for the names of food in China was different than what they call it here.
I got to my residence at about 8:00pm. I was the only one here at the time, but I could tell one other person had moved in already. He came back later on that night.
