Today was sort of the final hoorah for Tianjin. Although most of my day was spent in the hotel room working on the presentation, I took some time to reflect on all the things we have done thus far on our expedition in China. I still can't believe how much we have actually done and learned. Dinner tonight was also very fun. I actually got some more information from the Chinese students for the presentation and learned that a few of them plan to study in the United States in the future. This morning on the way to class, a group of us saw a very young puppy with its owner outside of a barbershop. We stopped, took pictures, and even pet the dog, but when I looked at the owner, he looked sort of displeased. I politely backed away. I wasn't sure if he was upset by our actions, but I figured it was our last day here so there was no point in potentially upsetting someone. The puppy was very cute though. I have noticed that the dogs over here are much more well behaved than those in America, for the most part. I haven't heard a single bark, and they never really chase after anything or anyone. I am not sure if it is the fact that there seem to be less, or if the Chinese people are simply better at training, but it is very interesting to me how well behaved they are.
