After I woke up, I was taken once again to Grandma's house to make dumplings and to celebrate the New year. We made leak and beef dumplings, which were really really yummy. And I learned that I am very bad at folding the dumplings, so I'm going to have to practice that sometime. My host family is really sweet though because even if my dumplings looked horrible they all tried to get one of mine and then they announced that they were eating my dumpling and it tasted the best out of all of them. 😊 We then re-watched the CCTV presentation as it replayed non stop. Oh and apparently there is a story saying that the day before Chinese New Year is when you should receive those red envelopes and then children are suppose to put them under their pillow like baby teeth for the tooth fairy, and they're suppose to bring good dreams and luck to you. So I did that, and then when you wake up you open them.
As I have had the craziest year in 2012-2013, it continued for a bit in 2014.
For the first year, as many already know, I did have the opportunity to travel to 16 different countries including: Russia, China, India, UK, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, France, Iceland, Ghana, Togo. I did this through 2 different study abroad programs, one with Babson College, called BRIC (Russica, China, and India) and one with CIEE: Ghana- Business Development and Social Entrepreneurship, as well as a 5-week backpacking trip through Western Europe in the winter.
