So, MESCA (Middle Eastern, South & Central Asian Cultural Evening) was last week – it was the first cultural evening of the year (excluding International Cultural Evening) and it was SO MUCH FUN. The MESCA people had been working hard for several weeks to make sure our first proper cultural evening was a great one, and they did a great job!
I don’t have any pictures of the MESCA dinner, unfortunately, but it was really nice – we ate typical MESCA food and everyone dressed in MESCA clothes.
The MESCA people then performed for us – it was hilarious, as expected, and played on many many stereotypes about MESCA people.
We have three more cultural evenings lined up for this school year – APEC (Asia-Pacific Evening of Culture), CCE (Chinese Cultural Evening) and NACE (North American Cultural Evening). ECE (guess what ECE stands for?) isn’t until next year 😦
In other news – China Week is next week, and on Sunday I will be traveling with a group of about 12 to a school in Dongguan to teach English. We have, of course, been loaded with tests and presentations just before this. Everything’s cool now though – the only thing I have left to worry about is China Week preparations.
More news after next week, when I get back from China.
