March 26

TODAY I got up earlier than usual because I need to go to Memorial Union on the campus toattend the orientation meeting organized by the SISS department. I hurriedly ate up breakfast, which was oatmeal soaked in hot water, and then hopped intothe taxi that had arrived at the gate of the house where I live. Again, this5-mile journey cost me 18 dollars which is a handsome sum for me. Anyway Ireached, with the guidance of a lady working at the Memorial Union, the rightplace at about 9:00 am. I got myself a cup of cold juice and chatted with a PhDstudent, who is currently studying at University of Birmingham in England. Hetold me he would stay here for several months and he had published severalpapers.

   Then the meeting began. I have to say thatI found the opening remark by a man difficult to understand. However, the latter presentation by the lady was much easier to comprehend, mostly becauseof her slower speed and clearer pronunciation. She introduced something aboutthe university and the city of Davis, the issues concerning security and driverlicense.

   Later I talked with several visiting scholars from China and they added me to their WeChat friend lists. Hopefully in the future we can travel together somewhere in the United States of America.Then I took the bus to Arlington Farm Apartment and then walked for about oneand a half hours back home...
