I felt the same way-- this is a great addition to Chinesepod.

Thanks for the poem.  I think I'll go back and listen to some of the Poems with Pete.

I am wondering about this too-- 走道 for aisle seems to be more common when you look up aisle in several of the on-line Chinese dictionaries-- so I'm wondering why 走廊 is used in this dialog.

I loved this lesson.

I go down to Chicago's Chinatown to buy moon cakes at one of the many bakeries on the main drag. They have a lot to choose from and in recent years have moved to smaller less expensive cakes that come in a variety of fillings: lotus, black bean, and melon are family favorites-- although none of us really like the ones with the egg yolks.

We walk down to the lake and let the cakes absorb the light of the moon, recite moon poems, send off little paper boats with candles into the moon light and then go home and eat the cakes.

This lesson still hasn't appeared on my dashboard. Any suggestions for how to get it there? I thought I was automatically subscribed to all the levels that I was following before the change took place.

Tapioca is a root starch derived from the cassava, or yucca plant. I've used it in cooking to thicken soup and to make pudding. I haven't seen bubble tea in the mid-western US, but I have had it when visiting the west coast.
