jingning: (Lightning Melancholy)
[personal profile] jingning
Sorry for the hiatus! I have been sick for the past couple of weeks, the first of which consisted of me lying in bed with a fever during my first typhoon in Taiwan. I am entering my third week of school here and my Chinese classes just started on Monday (September 26th), so I thought this would be a good time to sum up my class experiences.

I apologize for the relatively boring subject but I hope you will find some interest in how things are conducted here at NTU. Also, although I was not able to go out while the typhoon was at full force, I did get a taste of the amount of damage done to buildings, trees, and vehicles. I suspect I have yet to experience the worst of them...

Delphine, Lara, and I walked among the many booths of over 100 NTU clubs during the clubs exhibition day. I was in a sea of sound, the only language being Chinese -- students shouting from all directions, advertising their clubs and their pamphlets. Dancers and martial artists filled the streets, calligraphers and musicians demonstrated their talents from within their tents. Every once in a while, a life raft carried by several shirtless men would parade through the crowd; there were two girls wearing swimsuits standing in the boat and holding signs advertising the NTU Lifeguard Club. Every single activity and hobby that one could hope to do was lined up and down the main street of 台大 (NTU), enthusiastically competing for new members and it was glorious.
