Tianjin - Day 13 (6/06/09)
I have had a great time during my stay here in Tianjin. The people, the students, the professors, the atmosphere, everything was wonderful during my stay here. Exchanging gifts with the students was fun, I only wish I had brought more things to give away. The key chain I had originally brought seems to have vanished so I ended up giving away the UMD key chain I had on my keys. It was black so I hope that Tracy didn't think I was wishing death upon him, because I am not, it's just the color of the key chain I had and I was kind of nervous about giving that one away. I really wish I had known to bring more items to give away since all of the students here had given me something I feel bad about not having an item for each of them. I still need to mail out my swords so hopefully I can get that accomplished tomorrow with the help of either Jack or June. I just want to thank everyone (hopefully they'll be reading this) for a wonderful trip and time here in Tianjin, I hope that Shanghai will be as fun as it was during my stay here, but I kind of doubt that it will be. I also hope that I'll have a chance in the future to return and visit some of the new friends I have made during my time here. This has been so much more than just a trip to another country, it has been an unforgettable experience and undoubtedly the best foreign exchange program I have been on (so far this is my third) the other two being to Mexico and to Hawaii. So zai jian to all of the people that I have met during my time in Tianjin!
