Ne hao friends and family!
We made it to Beijing after our 13 hour flight this past Saturday. It was fun to cross so many time zones and fly so close to the North pole! I had a nice conversation with my neighbor on the plane who was curious to know why I was going to China, since I was obviously a student. When I told her about studying cross-cultural psychology, she was intrigued. In fact, every person I have conversed with so far has expressed their fascination with the subject, and enjoy interaction with international students.
Jet lag is very real and it took the group a few days to adjust, but everyone has adjusted quite well, and we are having a blast!
More to come…
