I'm still not really sure what day or time it is, I just know that I'm super tired. But luckily we get to sleep soon! Everyone I met is awesome, I really like the group of students that I'm with, and my roommates are great. The city is so much fun and the people are very nice. It's super busy, the driving is terrifying! The lanes are more like suggestions than regulations and pedestrians absolutely do not have the right of way. A group of students that are native to Chengdu took us out to see the city and get dinner. They were SO nice and so helpful, and literally some of the funnest people I have been around in a while. I got to try a lot of different Chinese food today, Japanese tofu, a mystery dish with potatoes in it, tofu soup, mushroom ears...etc. Overall I love it here judging on day 1!
So I am now in Morocco and am continuing my blog here. Should be a completely different experience so be sure to check in!
Ni hao! I'm making this so you all know the life events I encounter in China since facebook or "lianshu" is not there, sadly.
HOWEVER please email at firstname.lastname@example.org cause I would love to hear from everyone and would be honored to send you copious amounts of pictures of pandas.... full info
