Tanjin and I started off our day with teaching our extra classes. Here's a look at our (reject? -- there are a lot of broken desks and chairs shafted off in the corner) classroom!

We met up with John for dinner at Falahfel. At my request through John's spoken putonghua, we got the special room which was furnished with carpet, sofa seating surrounding the room, pretty chandeliers, and a sparkly table. There was even wi-fi, what more can I ask for! Well... the lion man (he's a dude who works there are his hair reminds me of the mane of a lion in a good way) offered us complementary Arabic tea. To make this fantastic day even better, they offered to put my falafel in a wrap (they actually don't have falafel wraps on the menu!). best day ever!

On our way back to the dorm, we hopped on the subway train again which meant I had to go through security check again. This time the security guard who was watching the screen got all hyped up to see something potentially exciting on his screen. Little did they know it was only my can of whipped cream. Once the security guards, now looking a little embarrassed, found out it was only food, they let me go by without any hassle.
I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of tempted to carry a can of whipped cream with my everywhere to see what the security guards will do next.
