Living and teaching in rural Yunnnan
Sorry about the midterms...but happy the knife shaved noodles are good. Have I been eating unshaved noodles all these years?
You have been. I think it's ok that they're not shaved though. The knife-shaved part refers to how they're made--by shaving/cutting a piece of dough so that noodles are made and fall into boiling water. Here's a picture of somebody making knife-shaved noodles:http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2571/3691933427_ea7b96e1f4.jpgAnd here's a pic of a bowl of deliciousness:http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2329/1730526781_706224bd5a.jpg

But yayy deliciousness.I've also been instructed to share with you a picture of an ibex (which I've seen):http://www.ics.uci.edu/~eppstein/pix/lazoo/Ibex.htmlAnd a tapir (which I haven't.): http://www.zooborns.com/.a/6a010535647bf3970b0147e2a8bd5c970b-popupSorry for the ugly links.
Sorry about the midterms. I hope your students are feeling like there is a way up - as are you!
