    CPC Central Committee our professor for today was the beautiful Dr Danzi Liao She talked about the differences and similarities of the Chinese and the American governments She also broke down a few key definitions such as modern market system rule of law cultural system etc It was pretty interesting and I like how she asked us questions and how she kept us involved in the discussion Now the second lecture was just as interesting as the first but a bit less interactive and engaging but it was ok Our professor for the second lecture was named Shulan Fei she talked about China s Economic Development She explained their economic system and how it has changed over the years from bad to good and back and forth We also learned about China s Economic Reform which explores the transition of China s economic past present and future This topic caught my attention because it is kind of like what America talks about a lot so I wanted to compare and contrast them both and see where both countries have opportunities to grow During the evening as a class we planted a friendship tree and we had a closing ceremony on campus where we left our mark as U S Students in China by having one of our student ambassadors Myles Gibbs give a speech The planting of the tree symbolizes new beginnings and life and the growing connections between China and the US such as the connection that we have made with our Chinese student ambassadors Like I said in the beginning China is a beautiful country and I m happy to say that I William D Zopp have gotten the privilege to come to China and learn so thank you to the Chicago Urban League William Zopp Thursday July 3 2014 Hello It s Myles coming to you from Hangzhou Today was definitely an eventful day and I m glad this is my day to blog So the first thing I remember is groggily waking up I slept over with Caleb Kameron and Emmanuel So I woke up and quickly got dressed Then after breakfast we went to our lessons Both were about the Chinese economy Not only did we have our last two lectures but more importantly today is our last day in Hangzhou I m actually tired of writing you see I wrote a speech today for the closing ceremony Here s the speech My father once told me that most elegance is found in simplicity And China is simply beautiful Its scenery is humbling through nature And its people are rich in their love for the past vision to the future and their respect generosity and kindness towards others So staying true to my father s lesson I d like to extend a simple thank you from all of us To the hotel staff who spared us of our carelessness thank you To the drivers who gave us safe transport thank you To our guides Tony
