Tour of Haihe River and The Eye

Although all of the experiences we had in China were eventful and breathtaking, the Haihe River Tour was yet another magnificent sight to see. I honestly had to take a second just to soak it all in and really comprehend what I was getting to do.


Americans love to go out on boats during the summer. It’s just an American thing to do. So, we were all naturally excited when we found out we would be traveling down the Haihe River by boat. We were even more excited when we found out we could stand up on top of the boat instead of stay inside the boat.


The view was straight out of a storybook. The Eye of Tianjin was massive and there to light up the night. There were hotels and movie theaters all along the river. The hotels were skyscrapers and people were releasing floating lanterns into the sky from the bridge.


I made a new friend that was with an American professor. They were both extremely interesting and kind. The Chinese lad got my email and the professor told me about his summers teaching abroad in China.


It was yet another cultural experience that involved beautiful scenery and people. Ahh, China never ceases to amaze me.

My dream is to be a news reporter and eventually an anchor on Good Morning America. I love to talk and I love to meet new people and hear their stories. I love love and laughing. Coffee shops are one of my obsessions. Traveling is another. I will be studying abroad in China for three weeks at Tian Jian University. I will be exploring several different areas of China, learning the language and customs, and meeting the people. I will blog and post pictures and videos to capture my trip. Join me on my adventures in the great land of China.
