We have enjoyed the numerous tourist attractions and park in Changchun and around. We have travelled to the beautiful town of Tonghua and its awe inspiring mountain scenery, to the hot springs in Shuangyang, the ski resorts in Jilin and to all of the parks and attractions in Changchun.
It is three years, nine months, three days and counting since I first arrived in the delightful northeastern city of Jilin. Driving from Longjia International Airport I was struck by how similar the landscape was to my home in Alberta Canada.
Living with you, Jilin, has been a wonderful time in my life. You know that I came here for a job — bright-eyed, optimistic youth — and it has become a career. You were a place of shelter, and now you are a home.
I ended up in Changchun, Northeast China. I still remember the first day I arrived as if it was yesterday. The people welcoming me at the airport, the welcoming dinners, and seeing all the sites of Changchun was truly amazing.
Changchun, capital of Jilin province, is famous for its auto and film industries, which are also the two cards this city showed to the participants in the "Jilin in the eyes of international friends" activity, on July 12 .
