Day 14: Comfort food

Today we did the most challenging part of the Micro campus trip, hike for six hours straight with a backpack dragging our stamina and morale down at the same time. Before I went on the trip I grabbed comfort food, which will be important later on. We started by hiking up by a mountain, which led us to a forest path. The forest path lasted for about 2 hours and while we were on it, we dragged our morale up by naming every word that starts with an A, then a B, a C, and so on. We stopped at C as we were getting tired and also the fact that Mr. T had to control our volume. We got to the jade belt and which I considered the hardest part of the hike. It stretched for kilometers and kilometers and every step just made us more tired, more sore, and more hungry. Luckily I bought comfort food so I did not starve on the mountain. Austin and Clark were less lucky and acted like they were about to die the entire way without food. Austin started to dream about food. Do not worry, they did not die. The Jade road was the hardest as we walked for three hours straight across a straight terrain with barely any rest is given.  We finally got down the mountain and got to eat the food made by the wonderful Ms.Mai. We made some baba that was more like a sandwich, and there was also the yam, which was a bit too much for me. Later, we went to the bathroom and we got a zoo instead. For some reason, there was an ostrich within the building and my friends and I were extremely confused by the sight. It did not harm us in any way so I guess that is okay. I also asked my friends if they would climb back all the way for a million dollars, weirdly, most of them said no. Really does show the challenge of the hike.

My name is Sunny, and I was a part of the Voyagers group in microcampus.I'm a gamer, artist, and love building stuff! I chose to join the Microcampus program because I want to become more independent and learn the lesser known cultures of China. The trip was amazing and I hope to come to Xizhou again.
