It has been surely my best trip so far.Those beautiful sights and friendly people still remain in my mind, just as I said goodbye to them yesterday.
I can’t forget those big fields,beautiful houses, live-stocks, farms and so on. Life in Kentucky is really relaxing that I will never forget it! If you have time,basketball games are always waiting for you to take a look. People here are so kind that they make my nervous heart calm down.Even though someone didn’t know me but still showed their hospitality.They asked a lot of questions about me and China,such as our habits and our life in school.My host family treated me like a member of their family. Sometimes I felt homesick,they tried their best to make me feel like in my own family.Sometimes they made Chinese food for me,although it was not very tasty but for me it was best food ever and I appreciate that they put a lot of efforts into me!I can always felt their kindness and generosities,also felt full of their love.
They also took me to church which was such a warm and holy place,people there were so kind and I felt welcomed.They hoped that I could have an expressive experience in church and enjoy my life in America.When I asked them some questions which made me totally confused,even for them it was kid’s problem,they still answered everyone patiently.
Although I really had an awesome time in America with my host family and friend,I still need to say goodbye to all of them.When I was leaving,I gave everyone a big hug and couldn’t help my tears.They hoped that I would be happy and be safe for the journey.
I still miss the time I spent in Kentucky,I will never forget the memories in that beautiful place!
