When I was in law school I was fortunate enough to participate in a study abroad program in China at the Zhejiang University Guanghua College of Law.
My first impression of China was getting of a plane in Beijing. I am not sure if you have ever been there but the airport is huge. In fact, our connection that was leaving in forty-five minutes to Hangzhou, was across town on a bus in a different terminal. As the panic set in, a flight attendant from China, ran with us all the way to the connection, as we hopped on different buses, and we made our flight. She did not have to do this and her kindness astonished me. While I think that there are kind people everywhere, similar experiences kept happening so then I knew that it was not a coincidence and the Chinese people were some of the kindest and most hospitable people. Just like home. In fact so many people welcomed us into their home and my experience was one that I look back upon with appreciation.
Once we arrived in Hangzhou, I realized that most of this region was old, in fact Zhejiang University was founded in 1897, and the green tea was delicious. In fact, at the University, instead of cold water fountains there were hot water spouts for everyone to make their tea. Did I mention I am a little obsessed with green tea? It was definitely a highlight for me. But my favorite city was Shanghai.
