I can’t believe how quickly the semester has gone by. I realized a couple of hours ago that I’m almost half way home. I feel like I still have so much to see and discover, but I also feel like I will be coming home with stories to tell, lots of pictures, and great memories. This is is by far the best experience I’ve had, and that’s coming from someone who has never traveled. Realizing now that I have a month left in China, I want to see as much a possible these next few weeks.
Although, two weeks ago, I had a very special experience. I stayed over at one of the Chinese student’s home for the weekend in Beijing, and that was beyond great! I got to try her mom’s home cooking, yum! I went to the summer palace which was beyond beautiful, and peaceful, and so unreal. I also went to the Beijing zoo, and guess what I saw? Pandas! They are so cute, but they can’t stop eating. On another note, meeting new people here almost every day is amazing. I love how my we-chat is filling up with new contacts. If anyone ever gets a chance to participate in this study abroad, I say go for it, its an experience that you will never forget.
