Setelah malamnya totally wasted by continuous walking and a little bit of wine, aku kebangun jam 11. Z sama K yang udah berangkat kerja left me a note to come to Z’s campus, Tsinghua University. Yes!

Tsinghua University is a top academic institutions in Asia. Refer to 2017 Times Higher Education, it receives 35th place of World University Ranking. President of the People’s Republic of China and Chinese Community Party Paramount Leader, Xi Jinping, is an alumni with a degree in Chemical Engineering.

Z works as a researcher in its science department. There’s no way I missed the opportunity to visit this remarkable university.

Kampus Tsinghua terletak di distrik Haidian, sekitar 15 menit dari apartemen. Masuk ke area kampus jadi keinget Universitas Indonesia. Areanya hijau dan lapang dengan danau yang ditumbuhi bunga teratai. Ngga heran karena memang dulu ini lokasi Taman Kerajaan Dinasti Qing.

Beberapa bangunan masih mempertahankan gaya tradisional Cina walaupun lebih banyak bangunan bergaya Western, reflecting American influence in its history. Suasana di dalam area kampus seperti di kampus Ivy League. Hehee..

Sorenya, pulang dari kantor, K bawa kabar bagus. His colleague, Mz, ngajakin makan malam buat ngerayain ulangtahun istrinya di restoran peking duck Tsinghua. Hore! My first experience with peking duck dan famous Beijing dumplings.

Thank you, Mz and family.
