14 days, from Boston all the way down to Washington D.C.

I went on a 14-day trip to three east coast cities in America: four days in Boston, five days in New York, three days in Philadelphia and the last three days in Washington D.C. It was an enriching journey yet very tiring- we walked at least 15,000 steps per day to travel from place to place. We even did a crazy thing that I have never imagined before, that is to stand in Times Square for 12 hours to wait for the Ball Drop on New Year’s Eve!

The distance of 10000 km

Ten-thousand kilometers. That’s the distance from my hometown- Taipei to here- San Diego. To reintroduce myself, my name is Kiki, and I’m from Taiwan. It’s my first time to leave my home city to study, and also my first time to study abroad. The distance from Taipei to here isn’t just literally 10,000 kilometers, but also the large cultural differences between West and East. So it’s a little bit challenging for me to study here. But I’m all ready to take on that challenge. It has been approximately one week since I got here, and just in this one week, I faced many eye-opening experiences that not so usually, or never happened in Taiwan, and I’m gonna share with you guys in the following!
