Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

Ate lunch at the Korean dormitory in Wudaokou today. A bunch of Korean students renting rooms in a building have designated one apartment as a cafeteria, and hired a couple cooks to come in and make meals for them. Ten yuan for lunch. Not a bad meal for the price, although I don't think it beats Cafeteria Number Eight at Beihang.

There are lots of Koreans in Wudaokou. Korean students, Korean businessmen, and Korean restaurant workers at Korean restaurants. Korean beauticians, barbers, and shopkeepers. Of course, there are plenty of Chinese business people here too, as well as businessmen from other countries. The Lush is owned by a New Zealander, and there is a new Mexican restaurant opened about six months ago by an American. But as foreigners go, Koreans definitely predominate. Not sure how it got that way, but I am taking advantage of it. The language school I go to was started by a Korean businessman, and the cost is very reasonable, about $30 US for two weeks of training two hours a day.
