It’s over already!

In just a few days I will be back at home in Florida and my adventures in China will be over. It seems crazy how two months have gone by so quickly, yet it feels like a lifetime. I have done, learned, and seen so much that I never imagined I that I would get… Read more »

Food! Excursions!

I’m back in Hangzhou again for the 4-day break! I am currently finished with my 4 weeks of global health in China class and cannot wait to begin learning about traditional Chinese medicine!

Oh, The Cafes You’ll Go

From Monday to Friday, classes fill up our schedule: 9:00-12:00 Chinese, 12:00-1:00 lunch, 1:00-4:00 class (Public Health/Political Science/IMC).

Jiaozi 101

There are now less than two weeks of my time here in Beijing. All I can think to myself is where has the time gone? I feel this increasing pressure to do as many activities as possible: visit more markets, eat more authentic Chinese food, and learn how to make jiaozi (dumplings). Last Friday after… Read more »

Hello again! As the program is coming to an end, I am sad to report that I have been sick for the past two weeks and have not been able to make it on any exciting excursions. But I have been able to try some amazing food, lately, and let’s be honest, probably half of… Read more »

Food for Thought

One of the things that most people who come to China rave about is the food. China has really diverse food options, and it seems like there’s something for everyone here!
