Day 13: Gobble Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving! Today after eating lunch out at Sifang Jie, we circled back to YZR to eat a nice meal that the Linden Centre staff prepared for us. There were slices of turkey and chicken, sweet potatoes, mashed potato, vegetables, and other  local dishes. Though it was my first Thanksgiving away from home, I still enjoyed it greatly. Ryley had brought her turkey hat that completed the day. After stuffing myself with apple pie, I finally stopped eating. During phone time, I talked with my friends back in Shanghai and they told me about the great meals they had. I was really jealous but I am thankful for being given this opportunity to be on this trip. It will be a great adventure and I am looking forward to the next weeks. 

My name is Sydney F. and I'm currently 12 years old. (Turning 13 after we come back from Microcampus!) I have been at SAS since the middle of 6th grade, so almost 2 years. Some of my interests include listening to music, playing all sports, reading books, and being with my friends and family. I enjoy traveling and experiencing different life styles and that is one of the reasons I joined this program. Microcampus was a great experience and I am glad I got to share it with the people I did. I look forward to coming back to Xizhou some day.
