A Bus Ride, A Tibetan,A Chinese and 20 Minutes


         Public transportation has its advantages, especially if you live near a campus. The convenience of commute, the opportunity to speak with students from different countries or the time to read something without having to deal with the mundane task of driving everyday on the same route. This post will be a recount of one of the many interesting incidents that occurred during my undergraduate years of commute on University of Utah shuttles (buses). As the title suggests, it will be about meeting a Chinese student (one of many I have met over the years) and my conversations with him in a span of 20 minutes. I will try to avoid the seemingly allegorical posture of my title in the following paragraphs, it's just a plain narrative of one of my experiences :).
