What great honor I feel today!

  Yes,we have been to Washington DC for one day,which gives me a quite deep impression of America.It is the capital of America,when I lay on the soft grass near the monument,I think to myself.
  It is really fabulous here,including buildings and people.Polite and considerate I think are the most suitable words to describe American people.Grand and glorious I think are the most suitable words for the buildings here,including the two temples,Lincoln Memorial and  Thomas Jefferson Memorial.They show me how Americans respect their presidents,who make great contributions to America's development.
  Then it comes to the The National World War Ⅱ Memorial.We recognized that it also shows all the states' name  on it like Lincoln Memorial did.
  I think water,especially still water,is used to show Americans' feelings.Still,or silent,keep me thinking of myself,and something, something I can figure out exactly.    But I love the atmosphere during the walk.
  Another such a great place,and such a great day~~~~~

The Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American memorial built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865), who led the country through a great constitutional, military and moral crisis the American Civil War preserving the Union while ending slavery and promoting economic and financial modernization.


In his
House Divided Speech ,he said that,

A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.


The Gettysburg Address is a speech by
him and is one of the best—known speeches in United States history.In just over two minutes, Lincoln invoked the principles of human equality espoused by the Declaration of Independence and redefined the Civil War as a struggle not merely for the Union, but as "a new birth of freedom" that would bring true equality to all of its citizens, ensure that democracy would remain a viable form of government, and would also create a unified nation in which states' rights were no longer dominant.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. ……

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.


By the way,
the Lincoln Memorial was shown on the reverse of the United States one cent coin, which bears Lincoln's portrait bust on the front.

The memorial also appears on the back of the U.S. five dollar bill, the front of which bears Lincoln's portrait.

Photos in Washington Monument

We are amazed at everything here.


Many thanks to our friends in OSU!

Today we left OSU for Washington DC, and I really felt a sense of sorrow when I came to realize that I should leave. But I will never forget my friends here. Neither will I forget the lovely campus. Each of our friends in OSU has not only provided us with considerate care but also inculcates us with many valuable life principles. Trying to think about others’ feelings, trying to be punctual so that other group members’ time can be respected and fully utilized, trying to experience the cultural ambient in order to have a more profound understanding of American culture……All of these principles will accompany us for a long time and act as a beacon of our life. Thank you, my friends in OSU, all the best wishes for you forever.

Days in OSU are one of the most precious memories for me!

I was deeply touched by the farewell party tonight.I'll remember all the friends and teachers here in OSU.I hope they could go to China one day for a trip,and I'm glad to be the guide for you!

And here are some interesting photos in the farewell party.













Goodbye~~





The last tour spot we went to is about planes and jets. Walking through the whole museum, I thought of a piece of lyrics of "Home" of Westlife, "Another aeroplane, another summer place, I'm lucky I know." Happy to enjoy these days here. And we're sentimental today, for it's time to leave.



Here's the campus of OSU, amzingly beautiful~~


Even the clouds here are more than decorations.

Seems to be different choices to us, I love these paths~~


Maybe we should say goodbye at the dawn of columbus...



Missing everything here~~

We are not leaving!

We are going to leave OSU tomorrow which makes us really really sad... I love the beautiful scenery here, I love the nice people here and I love the peaceful life here and the most important is, we have so many wonderful moments here! Recall the beginning of the camp when we first arrived at Ohio state, when we first met Mike and Pete and when we first step on campus, everything seemed so cool and fabulous, though we are a little bit shy but we really felt comfortable as what Mike said. Though we still have one more week in the US, today's dinner did bring us some sadness about farewell. We've made a lot of friends here and we've learned a lot of things which are novel and cool. We learned to play baseball and we all did a good job on playing that yesterday. We learn how friendly Americans are, which used to be so abstract images since we were only told by others or seen on TV. Also, we learned to be responsible to others, we knew how to make a group more united. I love OSU!! We are not leaving!!!

I will come back some day!

This is the last day we stay in OHIO,I feel great pity because I really love the life here.All the people I've meet here are very hospitable.You can have great fun chatting with them.Although language is a big problem between us, but never mind,they're forever trying to understand you.And the gym is one of my favorite places here.You can find everyting you want.Exactly,I have to say that I'm a big fan in the video games there.Unfortunately,I haven't bought my swimming suits with me,so I can not enjoy the swimming pool which seems really cool.I do try to adapt to the food here.You know fried food in every meal nearly make me crazy.These food may seem more yummy without the fat.I have to mention that it's excellent to see the baseball games on the spot.
Well,in one word, when it's time to leave,I feel that time goes by so quick.I enjoy my stay here,and I love this place.Maybe I can make a goal that one day I will come back as a student in OSU.

Thanks to all of my teachers here,let's keep in contact in the future life!

THANK YOU,OHIO!!!!!

Fun in the Sun (and in the Classroom)













Ohio State University

Ohio State University is a tranquil place to study.
I remember the day when we first arrived, the color of the buildings in the university made me think of
FuDan university in Shanghai which is quite well-known. Seeing the color, I felt calm.
Two weeks have passed now, I did enjoy the beautiful campus. It is a quiet place for young adults to search
for the truth of nature and human kind. But what surprised me most is the museum here in the university.
Before I came to US, I had imaged how nice the facilities will be, so all the beautiful facilities here
didn't shock me but the art museum. I donn't know how many students like the art museum in the Ohio State University.
But it doesn't matter, the catch is it is a reminder to all the students that essence of life in master's eyes. It's enough.
From the trip, I do see a better platform to develop the potential of students.

Body holds stories. Body holds life.


In the dance class, we all become dancers.

Sway, turn round and round......

Though our dance movement may not standard, even looks a little funny, we all enjoy and relax ourselves, to some extent, we have touched a new area with our body.

Dance, used as a form of expression and presented in a spiritual setting.The movements of dancer express what we see, feel, hear, touch, smell and taste in a beautiful dance.What really struck me is two young men dance on the stilts (actually I don't know how to describe the tools in accurate phrase.) They rotate toward the same direction at the same speed in their intersected world; they light up the sparkle of life, dance the melody of life, and create a eternal world hand in hand.A phrase comes into my mind-"dance with shackle". The dance is a story, a story of life, a story about struggling for the fate.

"Body holds stories" , a dancer says to us. I like this expression. I love dancing, though I may just simply purse the sensory meet . I love dancing, though using body language is not my forte. I love it, just because I can find myself in it.

Body holds not only stories, but also life.
