Day 24: A Special Guest

Today is December 11. During our daily meeting, Ms. Yolanda and Ms. Ling came up the stairs. They flew all the way from Shanghai to see us. We all saw them and at the end of our meeting, we talked to them. Since it was close to lunchtime we decided which guest would go with which groups. My group had Ms. Ling, who is also my Chinese teacher. We went to a restaurant in Si Fang Jie, and after eating lunch we went over to the tea shop. It was 1:00 which meant we had to come back to Yang Zhou Ren. When we came back to Yang Zhou Ren we worked on our service learning video. Today we had a lot of work, and it is sad that we only have 4 more days here in Xizhou.



The end of a long trip is always bittersweet, isn't it? I don't doubt you will all be excited to return home, but I can imagine that you will certainly miss Xizhou. It will always have a special place in our heart, I'm sure.

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.
