I always find life in America to be full of surprises. Here are interesting personal discoveries.
Every time when I go shopping with my host family I can find many things made in China. And they are really high-quality and reasonably priced. I came from a big city in China where I often go shopping, but I have to say that I’ve never seen so many beautiful things as I do in America. My host mom always says: “see, America picks up all the high-quality things you made in China and leaves low-quality things to yourself.” for example, a pair of the newest Nike or Adidas shoes usually cost you $30-60 here. If you are on sale , they can be 50% off.
Many of my American classmates drive cars. I am really surprised because people in China are allowed to drive until they are 18, while Americans are allowed to have a driving license when they are 16. My host mom explains that it is very common for kids here to learn to drive when they were young. When I was told that her grand-daughter could drive when she was just 6, I was shocked. Of course, she couldn’t have a driving license at that age.
