Following the successful completion of my qualifying exams last year I made a short trip to the US and Canada to get a taste of American academia in Ann Arbor so that I can explore possible research directions and then followed by visiting close relatives up in Toronto-Canada and making a drive down to Washington DC through Niagara Falls, New York State, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

While it was a very short trip I did manage to see and experience amazing things almost on a daily basis. Academically, I believe the visit to Ann Arbor set the tone for the following year in my realization that I would like to pursue experimental social psychology and the trip that followed made me appreciate the fact the after 4-5 years in Asia living in Hong Kong and Taiwan there are lots of things that await for me in other parts of the world.
