Here comes the hotness from HFIPS’s second international typical event “once HFIPSer, always HFIPSer”.

The Hefei Institutes of Physical Science held its second international typical event “once HFIPSer, always HFIPSer” by preparing the international students and postdoctoral researchers a “horsdoeuvre” of Ghanaian, Sudanese and Chinese cultures.

The activity, named Culture Tour was held on June 24 at Anhui Museum joined by fifteen international HFIPSers and their families. It consists of two sessions, diverse culture sharing and on-site culture tour.

In the diverse culture sharing, two international students Michael Osei Appiah (Ghana) and Rayyan Mohammed Abdelrazig Saidahmed (Sudan) presented the culture and traditions of their home countries with slide report covering almost every aspect of history, geography, society, economy and so on.

Then, the Chinese tea show came up to the stage in which Prof. Wenqian Jiang and her tea science team from Anhui Agriculture University presented how the way of drinking tea changes with history and the perspectives that ancient Chinese people held on tea culture. A special Tea Art Show was set to display visually how do the Chinese people drink tea in a traditional-modern combined way.

After the diverse culture sharing, the attendees had an on-site tour to Anhui Museum to look closely at Anhui history and culture as well as Hui architecture.

"once HFIPSer, always HFIPSer" is a typical event initiated and organized by International Collaboration Division of HFIPS regularly for international HFIPSers in hopes of enriching their experience in China as well as building and keeping close connection with them when they work and live and even leave the Science Island.
