Day 6: Under the Wind Turbines

I had a wonderful day today. Not only did I have a great time doing inquiry project work, but we also visited wind turbines on the top of the mountain. During the inquiry project, I visited Mr. Zhang, a very welcoming erhu player. He told me many information and as well as his opinion of traditional Chinese music in Xizhou. He also allowed me to play is Erhu and film him playing a traditional Bai piece. I hope to interact with him again.

The second exciting activity we did was travel to the top of the mountain and stand underneath the wind turbines. The view from the mountain was just as amazing. We could see rows followed by rows of solar panels, a military base, and an iron mine. From Mr. T, I learned that Xizhou has a lot of mines and makes a lot of money from natural minerals.


My name is Lifan S, but I prefer if you call me Evan. I have stayed in Shanghai my whole life, but I have visited many different places all over the world. This is my tenth year at SAS and I wish to spend it wisely. I am looking forward to Microcampus and Xizhou because I love to visit new places and experience new cultures that are different from home.
