I am so glad to receive your mail.You said in your letter that you would come to my city to do a study research.Since your customs are quite different from ours, so in order to make your stay here safe and comfortable, I’d like to give you some advice.
First,it is quite cold here in winter, so you’d better wear heavy clothes when you are out.Second, Chinese food may look strange to people like you, so you are supposed to learn to adapt to the food here and gradually you will find it rather delicious.Besides, what is the most important is the traffic. In China, we drive on the right compared with the situation in your country. So be sure to have it in your mind when you have got a chance to drive a car.
Hope you will enjoy your stay here.
