In the morning, we felt the air was comfortable. At 8 o’clock, we started driving to a old town—Ciqikou. This town closed to Jialing River. It was a traditional, cultural and historical block. Also, it had beautiful and particular scenery. There were many people, cars and stores. We all bought some monuments. Until noon, the weather got quite hot. At the same time, we had to say goodbye to Mr. Feng. He was another people who would leave us.
When we ate our lunch, we continued to driving to an aquatic market—Xisan Store. The environment of store was a little dirty. And there were much noise and water. So, we just stayed about 15 minutes. We knew some fishes. Later, we started again.
Our last station is the Liberation Monument which is located in the downtown of Chongqing. The Monument represents peace and liberation. it saw the victory of anti-Japanese war and the liberation of Chongqing .When the statue was built, it was the highest building than others around .but today, no one around is lower than it. In the modern society more and more commercial things can be found in this area. Around the monument, there are many mores and stores which sell luxury. So shopping is the first thing you must do when you are here. After 2 hours free time, we got many things we wanted and back to our bus. From here the whole schedule of our field course was coming to the end.
Later, we were drove to the airport and had to say goodbye to our dear friends Basia and Margaret .Before they went to security check, the two lovely girls gave their sweet gift to us——“mahua” that they bought in Ciqikou, which moved everyone.
Eventually, the last dinner was coming. We ate very good grilled fish which is very Chongqing. Tonight we had laugh and also cry. After the whole month I found I had got so many. I did things I had never ever do, I feel the life I had never ever feel, I thought things I had never ever think, what is more ,I met so many good friends and teachers. Thank you everyone, I am very happy to meet you ~
