When I first came to this beautiful country, I found the people always smile at you and say the nice words: how are you, etc. It seems like they care about you and want to be friends with you. But one of my friends told me that they only want to say hello to you because it is polite to do so, which made me sad. Because in our country ,when people say “nihao” (meaning how are you), we really want to be friends with you and we care about you.
Also, I have to say, the delivery is very slow. When I bought something online, it may took me more than four to get the package. Once I bought a Clinique cosmetics, it took me FIFTEEN days to get it. In China, the online shops like “jingdong” and “taobao” are very efficient. When you order in the morning, the package may be arrives in your home in the afternoon or the second morning, very quickly. Not to mention the takeout, shared bikes and many other services which make life a lot more comfortable.
When I buy goods in markets in USA, I have to use credit card or cash. If I forget to take this, I can’t buy anything. In China, if you have a telephone, you can buy anything, because we have the apps zhifubao and wechat. Wechat is extremely powerful since we can use it to pay everthing and we can send messages to my friends, send voice messages, transfer money and so on. These powerful apps make our life become simple and easy and efficient.
Maybe the people who arrived in USA in the early years don’t come back to China, because in that time China may have been poor, but in recent years, I have to say, most Chinese people who visit America want to come back to China.
This is only my opinion. I still think America is a great and wonderful country, and the people are very kind and nice. The students in the university work hard and focus on studying which Chinese students should learn to do.
