Though tired today, we knew each other better through running, yielding and laughing on sports courts and the grass; though sun tanned, we experienced the real American life—cooking and eating like a family. The process was the best thing to recall. On the baseball diamond, everyone swung hard to hit the ball as far as possible, ran fast to touch the bases and cheered up for scoring. Nobody cared or even remembered their nationality; everybody, native and foreign, enjoyed the national sport of America. It is, in my opinion, the only way that we can really experience the American culture and to understand Americans life style. In addition, after today’s outing, we all found that we knew each other better and many people started to talk to people they never had a conversation before. This is a good start!
