Day 15: Coming Back Home

Yesterday was a very nice day. We hiked up the mountain and it took 5 hours to get to the top and back to the bottom. The scenery was very beautiful, but I got my finger stuck on a tree and I got a little cut. The hiking was very fun, and after we accomplished the hike we went over to the campsite. Once we were there we set up our tents and went over to this dome, where we had our dinner. For dinner, Ms. Mai brought us Xizhou baba bread. We got to make a sandwich with the bread, and it was very tasty. I also tried the sweet potato. I thought I didn't like sweet potatoes, but after I tried it I was happy I did because It tasted wonderful. We woke up the next morning, ate breakfast, packed up our bags and our tents, and we left the campsite to go back home to Yang Zhou Ren. Yesterday was a very fun day and a good experience. I can't wait for the next great opportunity we will have.  


My name is Saleem E. I am 13 years old and my favorite sport is soccer. I am back in Shanghai, but I am missing beautiful Xizhou. My inquiry project was woodcarving, but I changed it to Myths/Stories/Legends in Xizhou. Xizhou was a great experience and not only did it teach me many valuable lessons that I will take with me through my journey of life, but it also taught our group valuable lessons. I would like to thank Mr. Tafel and Ms. Mai for their support and patience during this trip. Microcampus has opened up my eyes, and after going to Xizhou I view our world in a totally different way. Thank you Xizhou.
