Day 27: Hair Cut

Today, in honor of Mels birthday, we went to get our hair cuts at a local barbor shop. We were recomended to a place near Ran Yi Xian by Ms. Mai. Melanie went first to get her hair cut. We only wanted a little off just to be safe. The lady started cutting her hair on an angle, being very gentle. Once she was finished, Mel looked in the mirror. It just looked a little shorter but still even. Next I got my hair cut. For a straight 5 minutes, they were feeling and stroking my hair. When the lady finally starting cutting, it was almost like she was rushing. My final outcome was a littlle shorter like I wanted and a little lopsided, not what I wanted. Since it is just hair, I do not really care. I am glad I got to spend this time with Mel and the locals. 

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.
