Leave for Chengdu
Jody, Tang Di and I left for China on Monday, May 21st. We flew into Hong Kong and then got a flight to Chengdu. Tang’s parents and Mr. Li picked us up at the airport at 1:45PM. We went straight to his parent’s second home, an apartment in Chengdu. We relaxed at their beautiful high rise close to Sichuan Conservatory and the canal. Although very jet-lagged we took a walk to the canal park. We returned to the apartment for an incredible Sichuan dinner cooked by Tang’s father and mother. I’ve had a lot of great food in Sichuan and this was one of the best meals ever. They then took us to the hotel Philharmonic on campus and we slept like rocks.
