Life as a student in a foreign country for the first time
The first time I came in Haikou was with my beloved mother. She came along to accompany and guide me, as the experience to study abroad as a girl, have many difficulties, we all knew, she wanted to support me as much as she had the possibilities to. Having her by my side for the first week of my arrival in Hainan, helped me to stay strong in heart and soul, furthermore it helped me to be focused on the idea of what really brought me here in the first place.
Now that I have lived here for two years, and welcoming my third year, I can see amazing number of challenges and chances came on to me, just like when you move into a new house and experience many strangers suddenly knocking on your door without any before notice. Now that I have lived far from my family and friends for quite a long time, I can see things more clearly, I can have alone time to learn more, to discover about myself, also replenish and nurture throughout the journey.
Difficulties of getting used to a new environment
From the first day I came to Haikou, I could clearly see the climate difference between my home country and Hainan. Mongolia has a dry and cold climate in general. Ever since i was a child i had never experienced living in humid area for a long time. Whereas, we all know, in Hainan, the air humidity is always around 50 to 80 percent. This difference had led me to discover difficulties with fungi. Nevertheless, now i know how to get around with this problem.
