This is a picture of me taken by my friend at the Red Flag Canal

Such a journey does more than just satiate the wanderlust; it redefines perspectives. The Chinese legacy, encapsulated in the waters of the Hongqi Canal, reiterated the power of dreams fueled by collective endeavors. The canal is more than just a feat of engineering; it's a sonnet to China's undying spirit.

As I retraced my steps, the undulating waters of the canal seemed to mirror the highs and lows of the Chinese saga. A civilization that has weathered countless storms, always emerging stronger, united, and with an unwavering vision. The Red Flag Canal and, by extension, China herself, has enriched my worldview, and for that, I am forever grateful.

In the grand tapestry of civilizations, China stands as a luminous thread, weaving tales of resilience, innovation, and an unyielding zest for progress. The nation's patience, fortitude, and belief in the power of hard work is not just inspiring but transformative.

As I pen down my reflections, the waters of the Hongqi Canal continue their relentless flow, much like China's ceaseless march towards a future brimming with promise and potential. And as a humble witness to this journey, I stand in awe, celebrating the indomitable spirit of the Chinese.

Having lived in China for close to a decade, my love affair with its culinary delights is age-old. Yet, every city surprised me with its own gastronomic tales. With every meal, there was a sense of discovery — of flavors, of traditions, and of stories. The generosity with which each dish was served, the meticulous care to present the best each city had to offer, made every meal an experience in itself.

My heart wells with gratitude when I think of the boundless kindness of the Chinese. From the dedicated officials and professors who ensured our experience was unparalleled, to the ordinary citizens on the street who greeted us with smiles — every moment was drenched in warmth.

As an international student, the "Experience China" activity has not just been an academic sojourn but a journey of the soul. With each city I explored, with each tale I heard, I felt an even stronger connection to this land that I have called home. This expedition, though one among many, stands out in its intensity and depth. Eight years in China, and every day unfurls a new facet of its beauty and history. I eagerly look forward to sharing these stories with friends from different corners of the world.

To encapsulate this journey in words is like trying to catch the vast Yangtze in a teacup. Yet, it's a story that needs to be told. I eagerly look forward to sharing these stories with friends from different corners of the world, both in personal conversations and across various social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Because China’s tale isn't just its own; it's a story the world needs to hear.

It would be remiss not to express my profound gratitude to those who made this unforgettable journey possible. To 郭艳秋, the Vice Dean of Dalian Medical University, your care, guidance, and passionate leadership have been a beacon for us. To 陈娟娟, your assistance and dedication ensured that this journey was not only educational but also deeply personal.

This journey, backed by the National Foundation for Studying Abroad Committee and co-organised by Dalian Medical University and Peking Union Medical College, was not just a trip but a rite of passage. My heartfelt thanks to Professor Qiao Youlin, Professor Fan Jinhu, and everyone who played a role in weaving this memorable tapestry.

Words may fall short, but my heart swells with gratitude towards the Chinese government and Dalian Medical University. This "Perception of China" activity was not just an academic exercise; it was a doorway into understanding the soul of China. It is a profound commitment that I, along with my fellow students, will take forward, ensuring that the tales of China's greatness are narrated across borders and generations.
