Peter shows me a scale model of Fudan University. We are standing inside the two towers, about to join the conference. The buildings closest to where Peter is standing are roughly where his dorm room (pre-Fiona's-arrival) was.
The scholar in his element.
After lunch with Bill and Peter's former roommate Nathan (and their Chinese tutor) in the Fudan cafeteria, Peter and I took the huge, hulking suitcase of goodies to his apartment. Fiona met us there, and the next fun thing was opening all the treasures.
They appreciate everything! Thanks to Fiona's parents, too. I have never before seen two people utterly enraptured by the mere scent of Mint Milanos.
Peter and I then joined Bill again at the conference and heard some excellent scholars speak about their work. And since we couldn't join the conferees at dinner, I took Peter out to dinner. (Fiona had to work.) I told him he could choose Western style, since he so rarely gets to do that, and so we ended up at Pancake Day. Here he is about to dive into what has been his favorite restaurant meal as long as I've known him: strawberry pancakes.
