Day 17: Chinese Painting

Today was a normal weekday. We have a lot of things coming up like the end of Phase 3, Phase 4, and Service Learning. While returning a book to the Linden Center, we saw a guy painting a chinese painting. It was of the white walls of the first courtyard of the Linden Centre. So we decided to have still time there and watch him paint. It was really detailed and looks really pretty. He's only here for a day but Mr. Linden wants him to come back. There was a peaceful and calm sense in his painting. It was also very interesting to see the artist look at his surroundings and trying to find something else to draw. He doesn't only look at one object but a view as a whole. He's really nice and very welcoming. It was a great time today. Can not wait to watch Forest Gump today for movie night!

My name is Annie Y. I am part of the Superior Microcampus group. As of March 4, 2017, I arrived in Xizhou. We stayed in Xizhou for 28 days. Those 28 days has been such a unforgettable experience. I got to connect with the people here. They were very nice and welcoming. The weather was really nice. There was pretty blue skies and puffy white clouds. I miss everything about Xizhou and the Microcampus experience.
