Just a few minutes ago, I completed and submitted my final ISP paper at a grand total of 44 pages! Yesterday we gave our final IPS presentations, so now that the paper is complete, I am officially done with work for the semester. It’s so hard to believe that I’ll be flying back to the US in less than a week. Our last few days here in China will be spent doing a final mini-excursion to the Stone Forest and a giant cave system, attending a minority song and dance performance at a local theater, and having the expected sentimental farewell banquet with all our homestay families and teachers. After all that and some much needed free time running around the wonderful city of Kunming, America is just an epicly long flight away!
