Our last 3 weeks in China are turning out to be very enjoyable and jam-packed, mostly with farewell meals and hosted activities. Over a 16 day period, we already have 12 farewell events planned. Tonight was a fantastic dinner with friends at the best French restaurant in Guangzhou. Tomorrow is a Cantonese dinner with my law school colleagues.
While I am somewhat stressed about packing up here and figuring out the logistics of returning home, I am now coming to the realization that we are leaving behind lots of new friends. But many of our new friends are especially well-traveled, and I’m optimistic that our paths will cross again. Some of them may even visit us in the States.
