Amanda!
I received your comment. I am also very confused about the layout of the website, but somehow it all seems to work out. I miss you and Celeste and Samira and all of Stewart! How is Stewart this year? What are the freshmen like? Is it a similar atmosphere? How are your classes? Who is Will Pritchard? Too many questions, I know. hugs back.

Did you see lots of Lhasa Apsos in Lhasa? ;) Love the blog and pictures. I hope returning to college in the US won't be too much of a letdown.

hello!!
LAURA!! sorry I haven't communicated with you in forever! I just read part of your blog and everything you are doing sounds really amazing. It's weird not having you here this semester. OH, I am working for the English department and so I see Allison who does the pamplin stuff in the mornings... when I heard from her that you made it in, and I was so excited my voice got really high pitched and Will Pritchard looked at me funny. Celeste and I did not make it in so we were super thrilled that you did, and we agreed that you were very well qualified! Anyway, continue to enjoy your travels! I am a little puzzled by the layout of the website and have no idea where this comment is going to end up, so I'll just send it and hope for the best.... hugs, Amanda

I don't know
When I look at my own entries I don't see people's comments, so I think yours probably do show up for other people. Just not you.

Thanks!
My electronic translator said "huang tou fa." Yellow hair. You should see the crazy colors the hairdressers have at this salon. One has bright red, one blue, one has a mohawk the color of my hair. And they change frequently because they work on eachother's hair when they don't have customers.

You have "jing" hair
Sorry, can't type in Chinese on this computer, but you have "jing" tou fa. Jing, 1st tone. Same character as gold, or shiny. It's all the same to them also, they don't have blonde, sandy blonde, dirty blonde, etc. I'm enjoying your posts, you are great writer, Laura. I know exactly the kind of plastic stools you have been sitting on!

Coughing up blood is actually a pretty common system, I think. He felt better as soon as we got back to Chengdu.

"At the Drepung monastery a monk hit me three times with a metal plated stick. Its supposed to be a blessing or something." LOL, you should feel blessed, no complaints.

LOVE your Tibetan accounts. It sounds very interesting. What happened to the boy who was coughing up blood? Did he have to go to the DR? You are definitely 30% blue although it sounds like that number is going down. : )

Alex, the url for my blog was in my last Facebook status. Trust me, I still like American food. Probably more that I don't get to have it all the time. This weekend we are going to Subway, which is the only place you can get really cookies here. There is also a restaurant called Peter's TexMex that has the best milkshakes and fries. And there is Bookworm and the Shamrock. All too expensive so we only go a few times a month. Yesterday I had a yak burger for lunch. So good. Fried twinkies sounds disgusting.

Hey you! So I have been attempting to find where in the hell I wrote down the link to your blog... And after frustratingly long seconds of not searching, decided to type your name into lovely google and its the first thing to pop up! YAY! By the way I think the creepy girl was trying to hit on you....How is it that you always find the creepers and are NICE to them?! Laura, I'm getting you a tazer for Christmas. I hope you still like Western food when you get back....ooooooooooooh somebody's making fried something in the lounge.... HOLY HELL YES! IT IS ASHLEY FRYING UP SOME TWINKIES! All right Laura, I gotta go... I HAVE TO EAT LIKE AN AMERICAN! Have fun in China! Congrats on being AMAZING!

Whole fish
You might know this....the Chinese serve most seafood whole (fish, shrimp, etc.) because they believe it's inhumane to tear the heads off for the afterlife. I think my Mom told me that, so who knows how accurate that is!! Love the pictures of the food. It makes me sooo hungry.

Love your pictures. You sure are in the middle of a great life experience.
