Alan goes to the Tx. State Fair

In one of Mark's classes, he was given the opportunity to have an International friend this semester. Mark's friend is named Alan and he is from Shanghai, China. Alan is here getting his MBA at UTD. Part of this international friendship includes introducing your friend to things of this culture. So Mark thought that the Fair was a good way to say, "Welcome to Texas." They had a great time trying all the different fried foods, and looking at all the cars. Alan was very intrigued by the concept of NASCAR. All in all, they had a great time.....Next stop on the Texas Experience is a Mavericks game at the end of October.Fun, Fun!





Alan took pictures of his favorite foods, which included the "Critter Fritter" and the "Fried Pickles"....good choices, Alan

What a fun day! Candlelight at Old City Park (usually mid-December) would be a fun thing for an international student too, maybe? :-)

Erin, I had forgotten about your hair freezing and that piece breaking off! That was the year the ski trip was in Frisco, Colorado, right? Good memories ;-)

Another good hair story... Natalie Bowden's curling iron totally overheated in Kenya (volt conversion issues or something) and I think a chunk of her hair actually burned off!
