In the morning we drove around to various universities in Beijing just to take a look at the campuses. The three we visited were Peking university, Tsinghua, and Renmin. The campuses are a lot nicer than US campuses in terms of trees and natural beauty (Peking university has a sweet lake). I like buildings in the US better though.

For lunch we ate at the revolving buffet at Beijing International Hotel. We ate at the same place back in 2005.

Afterward, we went shopping for a while with my aunt and cousin at a large mall, before going to a short meeting with someone my aunt is working with.

Before leaving the meeting, I needed to go to the bathroom. When I walked over to the bathrooms, I turned around and walked away because I thought for some reason that all of them were women’s bathrooms. Turns out the men’s bathroom’s symbol is a dude that’s wearing what appears to be a dress, but isn’t. I guess it’s just a big t-shirt or something.

Also, while we were waiting in the lobby, my brother invented a new fashion/style/thing. He wore two different baseball caps with the visor parts as dog ears. Stylish, eh?

In the evening, my uncle took us over to a driving range 15 minutes from his place. It’s the nicest driving range I’ve been at, with the balls automatically popping up on a rubber tee from the ground. We each received 100 balls to hit.

The place also had a special exercise room with weird golfer exercise machines.
