Day 28: Why I came to Microcampus
There are a lot of reasons why I came to microcampus, although not all of them are necessarily good reasons. One main reason why I wanted to go on this trip was to get out of the bubble and see the real world. I have been living in China for six years and my family only just went to the great wall last year, so I have not really been to the real China which is what microcampus is. After being here for an entire month I have done so much that I did not expect. We spent so much time in nature observing and becoming aware of things no one in big cities is aware of. We were constantly exploring so much, listening and learning from the elders in Xizhou about their past and Xizhou's past which is what I expected because you don't do things like that in the "bubble". I came here because I knew it would be a great experience and it was 100% thanks to Mr.T, Ms.Mai, Xiao Tang, all the Mr. Yang's, the Mr.Zhaos, and Mr.Li and all the other local people of XIzhou. I thank all of them for making this a memorable experience.
