Day 20: Shanghai and Xizhou

So today was an ordinary day for me. Well, it is not the same as the ordinary days back in Shanghai, or anywhere else. In Shanghai, I would usually wake up and get ready for school, as for here it is wake up, be early to breakfast, and after that, you are on your own. We would have pitching in right after breakfast, so that means clean your rooms, clean other places, and make sure to catch up on work or journals. As in Shanghai, I would pretty much already have a schedule ready and I would just have to follow that, but here in Xizhou, everything is very flexible. As long as you complete what is to be completed, then you are just doing great. If any new Microcampus students are reading this, please do not slack off and do the work on the very last day, for that is the worst thing to every do, in the history of life, not only Microcampus.


Hi. My name is Daniel S. I am 14 years old. I was born in Quito, Ecuador, where I lived for 3 years, then the United States for 9 years, and China for one year. There are four people in my family. My father, mother, brother, and I. I can fluently speak Spanish and English, but I am learning Chinese. I have been blessed with this amazing opportunity to go on this wonderful trip of Microcampus. Like Mr. Tafel has said before, this is the perfect opportunity to leave the Pudong "bubble." I had so much fun in XIzhou. The people here are so kind and just great. I had so much fun learning a lot about Bai Minority Music.
