This was our final day of classes at Yangzhou University. We started the day with our good friend Dr. Lu and Professor Chiang, an herbal pharmacist. We discussed combined therapy of Chinese and Western medicines.
After the morning session, everyone went in different directions, including the YZU library, a local bank, or other nearby spots before lunch. After a delicious lunch, we hopped on our bus and rode over to another YZU campus where we heard a lecture by Professor Ji Bufeng on Chinese medicine and medicated food. He was a chef for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He prepared several dishes for us, including duck and chicken soup.
After the afternoon lecture, we returned to the main campus for dinner and then a farewell session with our buddies. A good time was had by all as we exchanged gifts with our new Chinese friends. We were treated to a visit by Dr. Lily Young, Dean of International Studies.
After our farewells, everyone walked back to the hotel, and then many went out for a last night of exploring Yangzhou before our departure to Beijing tomorrow. We are enjoying comments from family and friends so keep them coming! Now it is time for sleep…good night from China!
