November is already here and we are all getting ready to do our final assignments , project presentation and final reviews before the semester is over. Since fall is approaching the weather has completely shifted for this Miami girl. Winter is coming and seeing fall for the first time is really beautiful. All the leaves are changing colors and sometimes staying in is more on the safe side since the pollution level can look pretty dramatic .
Spending Halloween here in Tianjin was very different and fun since not that many Chinese people celebrate it. We went to this Mexican style restaurant called La Bamba to at least experience something spooky, and they had Halloween decorations everywhere. Some people were dressed up and had a little bit of blood makeup, but nothing over the top. We were also were invited to the university Halloween get together where we carved pumpkins, played games with each other, and enjoyed our time with the students.
