Well, it's officially my last week in China. On one hand, I am so excited to go back to Canada. I've been fantasizing about clean washrooms, privacy, my own bedroom, spending time with my family and fiancé, and being able to drive again! Meanwhile... I've felt quite sad that I'm leaving China. I have met so many wonderful people and made so many friends. I am sad to leave such a welcoming and unique country. Further, I was able to fit in quite a bit of traveling and experiences, but I still don't feel quite satisfied. There's so much more I would like to do and see! I've also enjoyed the atmosphere and food in and around campus. I cannot fail to mention how great it's been to have such a low cost of living here.
I've spent most of my time catching up with my Chinese friends before I leave, and doing the souvenir shopping which I had left until last minute. Further, I didn't have much time to go out and practice my photography much, so I've been trying to shoot as much as I can before November 6th comes around. Here are some of the photos I've taken during the last couple weeks:
Xian's Ancient City Wall
