I slept pretty bad last night so I set the alarm later and later. In the end I got up at 10. Breakfast was closed already, I just ate some cake leftovers from yesterday’s travel food and started to work on my presentation for tomorrow.
At noon, I got picked up by Rui and Meng and we went to a sushi place for lunch.
Very nice sushi:
Afterwards they drove me back to the hotel and I went on working on my talk.
In the evening, we had another feast. Yesterday was just the warm up. Look at this:
Great food as yesterday but more different dishes. But who said the Chinese didn’t drink much?! Today was completely crazy. They went around with vodka shots and you could choose if you take 2, 4 or 6. When asking for two, your got convinced to take at least four. I didn’t know any more how many I had, but I was well beyond 20 at least (luckily, the glasses were only half filled later on). Impressive how much they can drink. Some guys couldn’t walk straight any more. And tomorrow, we will start at 8:00..
They explained to me that first you make friends and then you talk about science. At midnight, we ended the evening and some guys finished their 100ml vodka carafes at the last toast. The whole evening was an impressive experience. And even I didn’t understand much, they were all very friendly people. Enough for today, I need some sleep.
