Today I am super thankful for all of my international friendships. One of my absolute favorite things about living in China is getting to know people from all over the world. I love learning about new cultures, food and hearing new languages (though I will never learn them all…ha!).
At the last big lunch we had I counted 8 countries represented and it total I have met people from over 20 in my time here.
Just to name a few: Singapore, Turkey, Spain, Belgium, Romania, England, France, Italy, India, Germany, China, Finland, Brazil, Estonia, Japan, South Korea, and Canada.
Each day is a new journey and getting to meet new people and try new things. Amazing. The constant meeting of new cultures will be something I miss on a daily basis when we move back.
|My Singaporian and Turkish friend trying a "durian" dessert. Not so yummy to the American and Turkish! Ha!|
|My Belgian and Spanish friends trying peanut butter for the first time….they were not fans.|
|One thing we all have in common….Starbucks!|
|O yea! We all love us some Starbucks!|
|France & Singapore loving some American Pumpkin Pie|
|Our kids all love to play together as well.|
