It was another early morning with another late night preceding it. One of our last activities in China was something we learned early on in the trip. We had one last opportunity to bargain with some vendors and dump the extra yuan sitting in our pockets. We visited a market that may have had the best and widest array of products we have seen so far on the trip. This was a saving grace for me, because my gift shopping was less than halfway done. I had left a couple of items in Tianjin by accident, so I needed to replace some of the gifts I bought for others and buy a few items for myself.
Today was probably the most I have ever spent in one day (in China), but I was pretty satisfied with everything I ended up purchasing. Not only was it the last time we could bargain on the trip, it was the last time we were going to see that many pretty Chinese girls haha. A lot of us had fun joking around and negotiating with them. All of the vendors I talked to were very friendly and didn't get annoyed by any of our antics or low-end offers. It was a fun and low key way to end the trip, and it will be one of my good memories from the trip.
The trip was awesome and I have absolutely no regrets going to China. I made some good friends in this month, and had some of the funniest and most enjoyable experiences of my life. That being said, I am looking forward to going back home and enjoying my family, friends, and Minnesota.
