South Coast Plaza

One of the places we ventured is the mall. With all the Christmas decorations, I thought it would be a good place to take a stroll and take in the American consumer scene. While they made a couple of purchases, the most important activity was probably just people/culture watching (besides fighting jetlag). In a Prada store, I actually met one of my former students who recognized me. When she told me her name, I remembered her as this high school girl sitting in a classroom, not a sophisticated, well-dressed sales lady in a high-end store. I felt a certain pride to have students who are now part of society when I was a part of preparing them for it.

We saw this very tall Christmas tree and I took a picture of the family in front of it.

And here is me and Shixiong, one of our many growing collection of “couple pictures” albeit another blurry one.
