Austin Bliss • USA • BMA Summer 2014
I am a high school student from St. Louis, Missouri, in the United States. A bit bored with Missouri, I came to Beijing over my summer break, and it was certainly the best trip I have ever taken. Everything in China is fun. The people are excellent, friendly, and welcoming. The food is delicious. Just walking down the street can be an adventure. Mandarin, (which I knew none of upon arrival), is an incredibly fun language. CSA make China perfectly accessible, providing all the help you want, without any you don’t. I really had a great experience in China. It is a place that truly cannot be understood without visiting. I can’t wait to go back!
