Shanghai adventures

For the 2017-18 academic year I had been studying in Shanghai. Upon the conclusion of my program in the middle of May, I returned home to Houston for two weeks of rest before returning to Shanghai. I arrived back to PuDong International Airport on May 29th at 8PM. Upon arrival to the airport I quickly cleared customs and continued to my apartment… I started my internship on the following day (May 30). In terms of the culture shock, this trip back to China was, for me, like returning to my own home. I have spent a significant amount of time in Shanghai and knew the ends and outs. Nevertheless, every moment abroad was a new experience for me. You never know what you will encounter, especially in China! My favorite part about China is the food. There are so many awesome options and you can go a very long time without eating the same thing. Not only is Shanghai full of amazing Chinese food, there is also awesome choices for good Japanese food! One of the recent highlights was having Terry Zervos, a senior at Davidson, in Shanghai. I took him to one of my friends restaurant to enjoy some of the best Shanghainese food in Shanghai! After not being at Davidson for a long while, I was able to catch up on the things that happened on campus this past year! Shanghai is an amazing city and I have been more than happy with my experience here!
