Today is our last day in Tianjin and I am sad to see this trip go by so fast. We had our final class his afternoon and everyone got to share some stories and experiences. A lot of us talked about shared memories and how much fun this trip has been. I have enjoyed meeting everyone so much and making new friends with both Chinese students and US students. Jason made us t-shirts with all of our signatures on them that almost made me cry. I will hold it very near and dear. We also got some pictures with the dean and got Jason to â€œpop his collarâ€? for a picture. Very not like Jason.
We are having a farewell party and then going out for our last night. We most likely will be making an appearance at Ali Babaâ€™s and hopefully got to Bar Street. Although I am skeptical of getting a drink now. Last night a group of us went to Harryâ€™s and I ordered Absolut peach vodka with Sprite. I received a shot glass with the vodka in it, a warm can of sprite, and a bucket of ice. No glass. The Chinese people do not drink, but it was funny how something so small as a drink can be so different in each culture. Next time I will make sure to order it mixed and with a straw.
