The weekend with Indian friends

The weekend with Indian friends

         On November 18th, we students from Grade 10 and 11 greeted our Indian friends with warm smiles, and then took them home. My friend is a girl seemed to be fashionable, called Kanika. We had a pleasant talk on the way to dinner place, Pizza-hut. She said that she likes fried chicken very much, but hates beef. That night, she went to sleep quickly after arrived at home.

        Next morning, though having been told to get up before 10 a.m., probably because of the jet lag, she was finally awake at 11 a.m.. After washing up, I took her to the kitchen where my mother and grandmother had already prepared the materials for making dumplings. We were going to have dumplings for lunch. Actually I rarely do cooking at home, so it is also a good chance for me to practice. While we were learning to make dumplings, she told me that she loved doing cooking at home, particularly tiny desserts like cookies and chocolate brownie.

         We drove her to Cheng Huang temple, a market full of small commodities. She liked shopping very much, or rather she was required to bring back some gifts by her family and friends in India. We walked along the street, taking glance at every shop we passed and buying various snacks when shopping. It happened that we bumped into another Indian student, she became more excited. That Indian student was very humorous and brought much laughter to us. We had great fun. As a result, all of us were exhausted after returned home.

         November 20th, the last whole day I could spend with her, was different from 19th, we took the leading Indian teacher with us. We picked her up at school at 8:30 a.m. and took her home. Since Kanika had not get up yet, so we chatted with the teacher and showed her around the house. She seemed to be acquainted with my grandmother. Maybe my grandmother was similar to her mother because they both are warm-hearted ladies. Though they couldn’t understand each other, they still engaged in boisterous conversation. We set out to the tea market in the afternoon, and then Tesco, for Kanika wanted to take a look at Chinese supermarket. She bought some chocolate and other snacks. Afterwards, we went to Tianzifang. There, they also bought many small items and snacks. At last, we drove them to the Bund enjoying the modern architecture along the bank, and took some pictures.

         On 23rd, we Chinese students had the farewell party with our Indian friends. Though unwillingly, the dinner had to be ended early because they had to catch the plane at 5:30 next morning. So we took photos together and exchanged our best wishes, and then said goodbye.

          I understood so much things this weekend, including friendship and hand-made things. What a meaningful weekend it is!
