Tomorrow, February 7th brings the new lunar year - the year of the Rat. Therefore, this will be the last post in the blog.
The last year or so has been quite a journey, both physically and mentally. As I have mentioned on numerous occasions, China is an exciting place going through some incredible changes. The few weeks I have spent back in the United States though remind me that most people have no idea what it's like over there. There are numerous misconceptions (like the fact that India is equally developed) and suspicions. I have tried to address some of them with my posts. I hope that I have helped shed a little bit more light on the topic.
I thank all my readers for sticking with me, especially the really dedicated ones who read every post and left comments to a few. It was very easy to write when I knew someone would actually be reading.
I hope Katie and I will go back to China again someday, and maybe then we will both get the chance to share our thoughts in a new blog. Until then, 再见.
