Detroit Trip (Sep 23rd - Sep 26th)
After arrived airport at 1 pm, we were suprised to find
there's almost no one there. Most passengers on the plane
transferred, and we were the only few people deciding
to 'travel' here.
The 12-hour flight and heavy packages made us feel helpless
and tired, however we had to find the motel's shuttle
bus to pick us up by ourselves. Finally we kept the
shuttle driver waiting for us for about 30 minutes, and reached our
shelter. First three days in the U.S began, which I think is an
unforgettable experience of my life.
The difference between china and U.S is beyond my imagination.
The traffic on the road near airport is busy but they obey
traffic rules and yield to the
pedestrians. The cashier in the supermarket or fast
food restaurants are polite and p
This week is for mid-term quiz.We all prepared a lot.Though the
teachers told us it is not that hard.But the most important thing
is that we all finish the quizes well.We did what we can.Kettering
has a really tough term.Students here have almost no time to
abandon themselves because of the frequent examinations here.As the
memorial day is coming,I will fly to Flotida to enjoy the
Disney Park for almost five days.The days here are really
unfogettable.We have classes,go to the Rec Centre,enjoy the
sunshine even late at night,chat with our German and American
friends at party time.
today ,we four finally finished our presentations,which based on
different long papers.It really took us a lot of time
to understand our own paper,especially Yalin Zhang's
paper is 28 pages.All in all,we just overcame,which is the
most important..However,more homework is waiting for us....^o^
During the orientation week, International office took us to the
Flint Museum. It's not very big, but we can get to know
something about Flint or Michigan during the tour.
The other guy besides Kefu and Junchao in the first picture
is also a Chinese, but he's studying in German,
and exchanged to Kettering from his German school.
For the picture above, we're having the course of E-Commerce.
We have both graduate and unvergraduate student in this class,
and the classroom is really cool.
It's just like a meeting room, and as you can see, the screen in
front of us is a mini television, on which we can see what the
teacher is talking about, like ppt or so.
This class seems going to be broadcast to the
public, and in this case, you can watch the video from the
link given by the professor afterclass.
Taking this course, is just like you are having the TOEFL
listening test. It's pretty good with a native professor
without any accents.
BBQ area...^o^ xoxo
We arrived at Kettering yesterday afternoon.Everything seems new
to all of us.It is somewhat enbarassed for us to order
our first meal in the airport of Detroit.
First time buying fastfood in Wendy(a famous triditional
fastfood resturant in USA) in Detroit airport. Things are different
from China. The servant, young bloude girl served me. 'Do you need
the cheese ?' said the girl when I order the hamburger. A plan
includes drink ,chips and a ham. What's most different is that we
should pour the drink into the cup by ourselves. As for the taste,
I think it is like those in McDonald.
After waiting for about four hours, the flight to Flint
As for this, we first wait for the flight as the ticket says,
but it actually changed, and we didn't knows this until 5 minutes
for boarding. So remember to check the screen and do not that
believe your ticket~.
