Day 137: Calligraphy

Calligraphy class with Zhao Laoshi

Our Chinese teacher hosted a calligraphy class at our RA’s room on this Saturday morning.

After enjoying some snacks (BBQ roasted pork Lay’s chips = surprisingly delicious), we listened to a brief presentation on the history of Chinese character writing and then got a chance to practice calligraphy.
