The warm winter and cool summer climate makes me comfortable, and the colorful Guizhou always brings me surprises. In addition to the mountains and rivers of Guizhou, there are many ethnic minorities gathered together, which made me truly feel the unity and strong national cohesion of the Chinesepeoplefor the first time! At the same time, the environment where ethnic minorities live in harmony also allows me to integrate into it more quickly and makes me feel very tolerant. The mountains here are beautiful! Theriveris beautiful! People are more beautiful! I want to tellall ofmy friends loudly.——I am very lucky to behere,in Guizhou."
