|Mr. Wong and Linda|
The temperatures were in the 30s F, and the wind could be quite chilling. Our guide (Nancy) from the Dalian Modern Museum took us to the Museum of Natural History and a large aquarium. We ate lunch at a place called "Barbecue Meat in Wang Mazi," selecting food by looking at pictures of dishes posted on the wall. Mr. Wong, our driver, tried to teach Linda to use chopsticks, but forks were always provided when they saw how inept we were. We enjoyed and were brave about trying new dishes . . . well, a little brave.

We toured the Dalian Polytechnic University and visited with Professor Ren Wendong, a famous Chinese Brush artist, who shared his book of paintings with us. After my lecture, we visited classrooms where students were working on weaving, interior design, and clothing construction.
