I am back in Tampa and ready to start the new semester. I miss China and all the wonderful friends I made there, but I have been keeping in contact with them. What I miss most about China, other than being surrounded by Chinese language all the time and having the opportunity to meet a variety of people, is the food! American food truly pales in comparison to the variety of pallets offered in Chinese cuisine and I can truly understand the difficulty that Chinese students have when coming to America.
I hope to have the chance to go back to China next year either for continued studies or for working as an English teacher.
