Beijing Part 2: Day 13, Birthday!

Today, our third day of class for the semester, is my birthday.

I told my teacher, who as I'd guessed, had grossly underestimated my age. He was also my placement test proctor. During the verbal interview phase, he actually had asked me if my parents told me to go to China to study. Thought I was a baby.

My teacher proceeded to announce my birthday to the class, and then make all of them guess how old I was. Only the Italian girl, who cheated because she was sitting behind me when I fessed up my age, got it right.

One of the Mongolians gave me a piece of candy.
