Day 13: Too Easy

Wow, the last day was easy.
WOW, the last day was easy.

Finally, as my friends struggled and bumbled and fell, I rose and walked steadily and easily down three thousand two hundred thirty two feet with my trusty walking stick and new motto: I don't even care.

I came up with this motto when crossing various streams, while my fellow Groundbreakers tried painstakingly to avoid getting their hiking boots wet, I simply walked across without looking back.

We came down the mountain as a group, holding back the insane urge to kiss the flat ground we traipsed upon, and thanked every god in existene that it was done. Later at dinner, I threatened to stab and/or strangle the next person that mentioned the word 'hike' with vigor and commitment.

Thus ends our three day hike, I am eagerly awaiting our next adventure and happy to be home. Stay tuned!


My name is Ryane and I am a fourteen year old student in SAS Puxi. My interest in Microcampus stemmed from a desire to participate in something outside of my sheltered metropolitan lifestyle where everything is done for me and I am painfully inexperienced. I have lived in Shanghai for eight years now but was born in Taipei, Taiwan to an English speaking family of six cousins and numerous relatives. I have left Xizhou and missing it most painfully, however, I am happy and excited for all future Microcampers and the amazing experience they will experience. Be good to T and Ms. Mai!
