Day 27: Goodbyes

As the final full day in Xizhou, we were all busy with packing and saying our goodbyes. Microcampus has been a unique experience for all of us. And we are all not ready to say goodbye to this wonderful village. Today's work included final reflections, reviewing Inquiry Projects and Service Learnings, packing bags, and cleaning the area we have been using for a month. This afternoon, Jason and I are planning to have dinner with Mr. Yang at the Golden Flower restaurant as a celebration and a goodbye. Mia, Debbie, and I really wish to visit Mr. Huang, the owner of a tea shop because we really enjoy our conversations with him and learning about tea. The five of us will miss this village dearly, knowing that it is unlikely for any of us to see these friendly faces again.
I am Audrey T, an 8th grader from Shanghai American School. I have returned from a 28 day trip to Xizhou, and it was a wonderful experience! I will never forget the friendly locals and the stunning view. Special thanks to Mr. T and Ms. Mai for making this wonderful trip happen!
