The Americans hosted a Moon Festival barbeque Sunday evening. We grilled hot dogs, beef, and sweet potatoes. Others brought salad, cookies, mini-pizzas, and pasta salad, similar to an American barbeque. Aside from eating, we talked, and then later in the night a handful of us played games.
Moon Festival itself was on Monday, thus we had no school. I woke up in the morning to the sound of drums and cymbals as the temple parades steadily marched past my apartment. In the afternoon you started to be able to smell the barbeque that neighboring families were preparing. It smelled delicious! For dinner, a handful of us met up at Caves to enjoy each others company and the food. Apparently we weren't the only people who thought that a family style meal would be perfect, because Caves was hopping! As always though, we walked away having eaten more than enough.
It was very relaxed, but that was perfect. 中秋節快樂大家！
