After a night of celebration and community – Chinese style with hot pot, juice toasts, and KTV (karaoke) – we began the long journey home in the early morning. The distance and time it takes to travel home feel appropriate for the vast differences between our lives in Yangzhou and Richmond, and yet also seem removed from the closeness of our friendships on the other side of the world. Stay tuned for student reflections over the next week.
