Dear Friends and family,

As some of you probably already know I am spending this school year studying abroad in Shanghai, China. I was sad to say goodbye to my family and friends and the beautiful beach and cushiony lifestyle I would miss in Malibu. For though I was excited to live in China; I was also nervous from all of the horror stories I had heard from numerous people about the crazy foods, over populated cities, and drastic cultural differences. However, I have been here for a little over a month now, and I have enjoyed every moment spent here. Though I would love to be able to talk with all of you back home the crazy time difference and phone charges make it quite difficult. So this blog is the best way I can stay connected with all of you. Feel free to check it whenever. I will try to update it as much as I can. You may also Skype me. Look me up by my first and last name, and remember there is a 16 hr time difference form CA, or email me at alexzi.girma@pepperdine.edu.
