Laura, Ya and Keren have finished their trip and are back with their families in Shanghai. But that doesn't mean our relationship ends here.
Yesterday Keren sent an email alerting us to the Chinese Teacher's Day and here is what she wrote:
Today is teachers' day in China! Happy teachers' day!
It has alredy been tweleve days since we left Illinois but the wonderful memory of those days spent with you is still fresh in my mind.
Through this trip, we were accompanied by you to many places to experience 4H and got lots of inspirations from the various programs you are working on and the way you work. And thanks to you, we've also got this valuable chance to get to know your way of life and to taste your yummy food. I have already locked up those wonderful memories in my mind with a click and they will remain my lifetime treasure for sure.
Ps: you can find some photos of the mooncakes I bought yesterday for the Mid-autumn festival, September 14th, a day for family members and friends to gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, and eat mooncakes together. I hope next time you come to Shanghai, we can sit together in a yard, enjoying the full moon and mooncakes together. Looking forward to seeing you soon in Shanghai!
