Day 6: Thankful For
Thanksgiving! Although today is another ordinary work day, the highlight was the theme of thanksgiving today. After the normal morning work and some fabulous food and shopping, I had a chance to connect with some more silver smiths in town. I took a closer look at how Mr. Zhao worked with gold and created a really beautiful and fascinating piece of decoration for traditional Bai clothing.
Since it's thanksgiving today, I took time to think about things that I'm thankful for. I am thankful for Mr. T and Ms. Mai, for bringing us here to Xizhou for such an amazing opportunity. I am thankful for the staffs and helpers here, for making the Microcampus adventure feasible. I am thankful for my friends (wait I don't have any) and teachers back in Shanghai and SAS, for giving me support and motivation to move forward. I am thankful for my family, for always being there for me and taking care of me. In addition, most importantly, I am thankful for THE FOOD AND THE SKY HERE IN XIZHOU! We ate dinner for thanksgiving and the starry sky is so very very beautiful. The opportunity to be here in Xizhou has brought so much to me. I am really thankful for Microcampus.
