So I'm sorry for not updating on adventures or pictures in the past week. Don't know if I'll write about them later, because when I wrote it the first time, Travellerspoint decided not to save it. It was my last week in China, I've been busy :O
And now, Friday August 13 is the last day. I miss America and all, but I'll miss China too. I mean, it's the land where my heritage comes from, and this is my first time seeing it with my own eyes. I love my host family, and the time that I've spent here. I really hope that I get to come back again soon, and see my family here again. My Chinese has improved along with my understanding of the culture that I've lived with all my life. I don't want to leave, but I must. This is the first time in my life I've ever had to be independent, and in that time I've learned so much. I'm very happy that I spent my summer here, instead of sitting around at home with nothing to do. I'm fortunate to have this experience and want to share this opportunity with everyone when I get home. There are so many people to thank, and so many people I have graditute for. Right now, I don't have the words to express it. (except maybe in the speech I gave today). I have so many feelings about China left in my heart, but there are no words to express it. I'm going to miss China so much, I'll definitely be back some day.
Saturday I'm getting on the plane at 3:45pm, and am arriving Saturday at about 6pm. (with the 13 hour trip into the past in between). I'll be mentally home sometime in the next week. See ya'll soon.
