So today is our last day in Harbin. Tomorrow we’re going to take a train to Beijing and on the 18th I’m flying back home, to Latvia.
On Monday we had our last (really last) school day to eat with the headmasters. On Tuesday we went to the amusement park with Thai girls. Yesterday all of us (and all the Thai girls except for Valentine) went to eat at a buffet and of course I ate so much that I couldn’t move for an hour or so… Today in the morning I dyed my hair, then went to join Gabri, Mo and BaoBao to sell my clothes and then we went to eat lunch with the Korean students. It was a bit awkward because we didn’t really talk to them that much at school and their lunch was just… wow. We ate, talked really really little and then took a lot of pictures. Really. A lot. Also on the 18th is my host sister’s birthday so I bought her a present and today at home I asked my family to take pictures with me. Now I’m kinda finishing packing and… well.
Lunch with the Koreans.
And my family. Me, my sister, my really, really shy brother, YouYou (the dog), kind-of grandma (she’s host mom’s aunt) and mom. Dad was taking the picture.
This is my last blog entry from China, I guess.
This year was something that I will never forget and something I would never change. I love all of my classmates and I will miss them very much when I’m back, I hope we can see each other again in the future. Also our teacher, Zhou laoshi. We’ve been sometimes bad to her, ignoring the school rules and so on but she’s been so nice to us all this time, really, I’ll miss her a lot. And she’s getting married soon!!
Since I was the first AFS student from Latvia to come to China I think my experience was bad. If anyone will ask if they should go to China or not I will tell them this: you should go if you are really interested in China and/or Chinese language. If you just want to experience something different and exciting then I don’t advise you to go to China, I advise you to go to Thailand or South America or India… it depends on the continent where you want to go.
When I’ll be back in LV I think I won’t have internet for a few days so see you in a.. few days!
THANK YOU AND GOODBYE CHINA, I WILL MISS YOU!!!
