I cannot believe that I only have four weeks left in Shijiazhuang. At the beginning of the semester it seemed as if my time here was going to drag on and on, but the last eight weeks have gone by very fast. I have grown to really enjoy my time here and I have branched out quite a bit with other foreigners staying in the city. I plan to someday return to China to teach english and I hope that day will come sooner than later. Although this experience started out as a rather disappointing one, all in all I would have to say that I very much like China and some of the experiences that I have had here I will remember for the rest of my life. This weekend we will head to Xi’an for the last of our University sanctioned trips. I am beyond excited to see the Terra Cotta warriors and the original Great Wall of China. More to come on our trip next week!
