Shanghai summer surprise

My original plan wasn't to go to China this summer but to my surprise that's where I ended up. Using CHI was a safe, easy and affordable way to see Shanghai. While there I stayed with a very nice young family. I ate amazing Chinese food, a lot of which came from the families garden. The house was comfortable and close to public transportation. Shanghai is an international city with lots to see and do. The air quality is better then Beijing and the metro is awesome. My CHI coordinator was helpful and always available to answer any questions. I happened to be the only CHI volunteer in Shanghai so meeting with other program volunteers was not possible. That was okay I still meet some amazing people to hang out with and enjoy the sites. I spent time with my host family working on conversational English and a summer English homework packet. Along with seeing Shanghai I also visited Wei Hai ( a beach city) and Wuzhen (a water town). All in all it was an amazing summer learning about eastern culture and sharing western culture with some awesome people. I would definitely use CHI again. It's a great way to travel and see the world
