Our lodging is at the far end of Nanjing University campus.  The campus is divided into the dormitory area for the students (and we live in this part of campus) and the academic and teaching area.  Hankou Road runs through the middle of campus and divides the two sections.  Several times a day we walk through the dorms and see the students going about their daily lives.
