We went to Tienanmen Square on Sunday. Jia showed us the subway stop near Tsinghua and the other basics like buying a ticket. It's really cheap since it only costs 2 yuan to ride and you can go pretty much anywhere. It's crowded but everything's on a fixed path and you just have to know where to transfer. Lotta walking too. I'm going to be a speed walker by the time I'm done here.
Also met with the students and Dr. Cao at the lab. Everyone is nice and the lab is excellent. I also got help from Wen Zhang and another students whose name I don't know to spell (doh) to purchase a cellphone (since I don't know any Chinese... heh) - I'll get this Chinese down one day... maybe. :P
