I got this scholarship from the Chinese Government to attend Sichuan University, and I'm really excited to move to Chengdu!
But surprise, surprise, the Chinese Embassy and Sichuan University have been less than helpful in giving me any information. I essentially know what day classes start, but very little else.
Anyone else on this scholarship or has been in the past? Have any advice on navigating the world's oldest bureaucracy?
I'm a big fan of this place.
Clean and comfortable atmosphere, really warm and welcoming servers/owners, fast internet, iced coffee with ice cubes made from coffee!, cheap/delicious sandwiches, no smoking inside.
The coffee and salami sandwich cured my hangover in no time, not to mention I downloaded all of that show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child" in like 20 minutes.
Went to The Spot recently for their lunch burger deal — a can of coke, 6 french fries (literally), and a burger for about 30 kuai.
Burger was good, definitely better than the ones of McD's or Grandma's Kitchen.
I was disappointed in the service, however. Like many restaurants around here, there were about 10 people on the clock, and about 1 person actually doing work. Probably waited half an hour for a burger, and it came out incorrect. Definitely say your order in Mandarin or clarify your English with a lot of menu pointing.
