"I really like Elizabethtown and Pennsylvania because the climate is mild and I can experience the different weather throughout the year. Last winter, I saw a lot of snow - the biggest snow I've ever seen. I come from a warm city from southern China, so the snow makes me feel happy and excited! I also like the farmland in this area. Every time I am on the highway, I can see the green farmland. It's really beautiful!"
