After the plane landed, I met my host family, and a slightly drunk Cash, And I'm glad it wasn't someone else, they were very friendly. I got to know the mother really well after only two days! She ask if these clothes she like look good on her and they did, she ask me what I thought of leaving china after six months and I told her "after only being here two days, I feel safe and it feels like I belong and it brings me sadness that I will have to leave and go back home."
About a week later, we started to celebrate Chinese Spring New Years! I was so excited I didn't know what was going to happen but I really wanted to try some new food! On New Year’s Eve, we had a big feast, full of sea food and noodles.
After we played a card game and watch the kids open the red envelope, and I was surprise that they included me too, I was given two envelopes. Lucky money for the whole year!
While receiving lucky money on Wechat, I also learned how to create stickers on that app and blew up the chat multiple times. This has been the first and the most wonderful experience I’ve ever had and hope to do it again!
