Concierge 101

During our orientation week, we also receive a tour of the campus. As we wait for our tour begin, a young man from Holland approaches me, and asks whether I speak English or not. I tell him I'm from Canada, so yes I do. We start chatting, and we get on the topic of places to go, should you wish to enjoy an alcoholic beverage. He has been unable to find any bars around Xiamen. My concierge instinct comes out, and I assure him there are plenty, and rattle a few off.

After our tour of the campus, he asks if it would be possible to show him where some of the bars are located, around the university. What was I going to say, no?

So now, Mark and I will be hosting a pub crawl of Xiamen.
