I woke up today morning feeling extremely content-which is weird. I usually do not feel content after traveling somewhere-I am always left wanting something more, wanting to stay in the place and keep exploring. However, there was an extreme feeling of happiness-just to have been blessed to experience everything that I was able to. I truly enjoyed every second of the trip, and I knew I grew so much-not only in terms of my world view thinking and openmindedness, but also on my picky eating skills and sociable skills. I grew fonder of Pitt, and I am so excited to see where Pitt Study Abroad takes me in the future.
On our last morning, a few friends and I decided to go to the mall and walk around for a little bit as we had already packed earlier. The malls are truly like museums in China-everywhere you look is so beautiful! As we ran back to the hotel, we all greeted each other and said bye to a few of our friends who would not be going to the airport with us. As we went to the airport and did our last number call, I realized just how happy I was to be able to be friends with this amazing group of people. This trip would have not been what it was without the people, and each one on the trip made a deep impact on me. As I am boarding the plane, I am so happy to have been able to experience China, but know that I will be hopefully coming to see everything else that China has to offer!
