The Homestay China Program seemed to be a pretty easy way to spend some time in the 'Country Between' - and it was: except booking my flight myself everything else was organised by the office. Two days before my arrival in Kunming then the big shock: My family all of a sudden couldn't host me anymore! Completely terrified I got on the plane anyway, believing Homestay's calming words: Don't worry. And they were right, by the time I landed they had already found another family and I could move in within days. China gave me a lot - I grew ages in the 5 months I finally stayed. It is a challenging country, you should keep well in mind that it can absolutely not be compared to any western country, and this fact can sometimes need taking a deep breath. However, I don't regret a single second that I spend in this amazing, beautiful, exciting, crazy country. I enjoyed its culture, language, food, customes and people, who are - in my opinion - one of the world's friendliest people, I met wonderful personalities here. My family happened to be what I could only have dreamed of - heartwarming, open minded, caring.. In the few months I was living with them I felt like becoming part of their family, being called 'daughter' and closing them deep into my heart. I really loved my time in China and can only suggest everyone to do the same. Homestay China's programe therefore is definitely a good way to do so, the helpful stuff will always try to make you feel comfortable in every situation and help wherever needed.
