Oklahoma literally means “red people”, or Native Americans. It’s got a very small-town feel and people there are markedly friendlier and more gracious than New Yorkers. We went to the Stockyards Christmas Parade where pretty (and handsome) horses, staid-looking cattle, cowboys, John Deere machinery, vintage cars, local pageant queens and sheriffs – anything that symbolizes Oklahoman pride – passed by cheering locals. Some of them would throw candy to kids. Our presence (“And guess what? We’ve got 27 Singaporean students with us today!”) was twice announced by the hosts. I hope they know Singapore is not part of China.
Where we studied for a short three weeks. I love the campus! I would love it even more if they served better (Asian) food at lower prices.
I’m gonna be late. More photos next time!
