Three of my wonderful sophomore students came over to my apartment to teach me how to cook my favorite Chinese food, mao cai. I had posted on the Chinese social networking site, QQ, asking if I knew anyone who could make it. Many people responded, but Damon, in the middle, was the only person who could actually cook it herself. I’ve learned how to cook many of my favorite foods here and I’m really excited to cook everything once I get back home. I have been teaching Theodora, Damon, and Rafaella’s class for two years now and have loved getting to know them really well during this time.
