Abigail's Journey to China

Current Location

Shenyang, China

Nǐ hǎo! Hello! I am Abby, and I will be teaching for one year at Northeastern University in Shenyang, China. I am so excited to share my adventure with you!


Suzhou is known for its beautiful canals, which people travel down by boat. Besides exploring the canals, I celebrated my friends birthday and practiced speaking Chinese here, too!


Farewell, class. It has been awesome being able to share my journey with you all these past weeks!

Field Notes

I love to send and receive mail! I have had so much fun sending postcards to my friends and family while in China. To do this, I had to figure out how to use the postal system here.


Every day, I eat lunch (for $1!) in the cafeteria with my friend Mo. My favorite foods here are the scallion pancakes, veggie fritters and spicy chicken stir fry. What's your favorite lunch food?
