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!
