Hey you guys, haven't see u 4 long time, cause I went to Canada last summer vacation. My school is cooperation relationship with a Canada's university, so we need go to Canada and stay a month. As known, Canada is big country, their proportion is third in the world, but I think they have few population. I was live in Vancouner, Richmond, the people live in Canada all are kindly, maybe it's cause the good weather. You know what?! When I went to school in Canada, I can wear long sleeve, but if you're in china in the same time, it must be 37-40 degrees. When I came back to China, I mean the second when the plane arrived in GuangZhou International airport, everybody looks so excitiong, I no different. I still feel fresh about the past month and veery memories refresh us, nobody feel tired again, actually when I leave Canada I thought my brain is empty just like everything is vanish, I am afraid of the process will be forgot by myself so I want write that I remember at the first opportunity.

Actually writing about your experiences is a good thing if you wish to remember them, eh. I guess the thing to do is write something that you remember doing and just let it happen. I met someone a few years back from China that was skating for the first time. That was in the winter, eh, and it was funny cause we had a chance to talk as I held her up from falling. I know we have a different culture but it was fun to laugh and get to know someone from a different place in the world. What do you remember about your summer?

NO NO,it was also fun to laugh in China, if you guys are friends, and you held her,she did'nt care about laugh,right? When Im back, you know what, I feel I almost can die with the 37-40 degrees!!!And I know I think of the temperature in Canada.What's more,even Im a chinese,but I really want to say the we have quality gap, in china you will never see people line up when we wait for bus ,but in Canada, everybody line up,and they're courteously, when I get on bus, I heared people say hello to bus driver, I also do it,but you also can't see it in China. The funny thing is when I get on bus in China I say hello to bus driver cause usual practice in Canada, but nobody respond me,and look at me use strange eye. And I will clear up my mind then write other thing happend in Canada,share with you guys.

Yes, we just met for the first time on the ice, skating. It was very obvious that she had never skated before because she was shaking. I went over to say hi and when she looked up at me it appeared like she was going to fall over so I grabbed her to prevent her from falling on the very hard ice. Ouch, that could hurt, eh! Then, we laughed because she was surprised like in her mind she must have thought, "why are you grabbing me?" but she knew by my face I was afraid for her and perhaps if she did hurt herself I would feel I was the cause of her peril. It was fun then after to skate and talk. Then we said goodbye and I suppose like you a student going to university she went back home at some point. Why do you not line up for the bus? Is that not confusing? Who goes first? I think the bigger the city the less people talk to each other but I find that in some situations not talking is preferred. If people are busy they do not wish to be disturbed for example. Sometimes people like to talk or say hello too. Yes please tell something that happened to you in your journey. Even if it is small it is nice to read how you see things or what you notice. Thank you for responding to my post. I am new here to my lot.

I actually live in Canada. It's the second biggest country in the world, and, as you have mentioned, we have a fairly small population. But I find that it's a really beautiful country. I haven't been to British Columbia, but I'd love to visit it. From the parts of Canada that I have seen, I just love it. It's a really great place to be.

Hey wow you went to Canada too. I when to Canada some time ago to see what was at the time my girlfriend. Canada is so different the the USA, when i went i was Christmas time. I didn't go to many places there but from what I could see they don't like Christmas like we Americans do. I did like my visit but man it was cold, when the wind would blow I thought my teeth would fall out haha. You are lucky that you go to go when it was summer. I hear its very beautiful over there in the summer. Any ways there was a lot of snow every where, now I have seen snow because i have grown up with it but this was so different. I have never seen that much snow in my life. I only spent a week there but I am glad I went. It was something I look on with a smile knowing I have seen more of the world then just my backyard. I hope you had fun your time on your summer trip too Canada, I no I had a great time looking at all the different site in Canada. I see that this is going to be you fist comment and I hope you like my little story. God Bless
