cultural exchange

"Danny, my students said you're really cute!" -- Aunt Jill

Happy Chinese New Year's Eve!

The past week has been rather busy as my aunt Jill and two of her students stayed at our house during their visit from China. This was my first time seeing Jill since our trip to Taiwan and China six and a half years ago. It's hard to believe how fast time flies. The reason for my aunt's visit is that her students Sunny and Melody were interested in studying abroad for their higher education. Jill had arranged for us to show them around so they could get a feel of Western culture and what living in the U.S. was like.

We took the girls to Stanford University and some local stores over the weekend. Jill and my parents also gave them a tour of San Francisco and a few other places afterwards. It was an exhausting week as Mom had to prepare meals for three additional people, not to mention teenage girls in general can be bratty at times. Despite all that, I really enjoyed their company.

Our guests left this morning and are heading to Florida. They'll be visiting Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World for a few days before returning to China. I'm going to miss them for sure, but Jill says she hopes to visit again later this year. :-)

Currently watching: Star Trek: The Next Generation season 2, episode 12: "The Royale"
