While most of the group headed to Chipotle's for dinner, five of us went to Potbelly's, a big hit with last year's AGU in America participants, for sandwiches. With such a long winded ordering process and so many things to choose from, it was a bit intimidating at first, but with a bit of courage and some friendly help from the people behind the counter, everyone was able to get their food just fine. We were also able to enjoy some relaxing music from a young man strumming away on his guitar in the corner of the restaurant while we ate.

This is just the beginning though -- we still have so much more coming up. I hope everyone is ready for some more adventuring tomorrow!!

Hello, Laura!
I just can't believe that you're now in the US, and one of the mentors because I've felt the day (almost) all of AGU 2006 members hung out is like yesterday! Hahaha...

Anyway, the things you guys did brings me back to the memories of last year! I hope everyone will have as much fun as last year's members did, and I'm looking forward to reading your post both on this blog and your own blog. ^^

I hope this year's group enjoys Potbelly's as much as last year's did!

Hello, everyone.

I'm sure going out for food must have been a very interesting experience. I remember something similar when I was in Taiwan a number of years ago. I couldn't decide what to order, even with the English menu, so I finally chose from the plastic models of various foods--and got some interesting surprises! (Plastic models of food aren't very common in the U.S., unfortunately.)

I hope all of you learn a lot during your time in the U.S. and I also hope you have many wonderful new experiences!

Best wishes--
