Inquiry Topic: Local Trade/Tea Horse Trail

The topic that stood out for me was Local trade/Tea Horse Trail, and this is the inquiry project I will be focused on during my Microcampus trip. After some research, I found out that the tea and antique trade present in Xizhou greatly impacted the people living there and this made me extra curious about the origins and development of the trail. From the opportunities given by this trip, I would like to discover more about the local antique trade because I feel like each small, fragile, decorative antique has their own significance and cultural relevance behind it, which meant I could explore the cultures and traditions of Xizhou and bond with the people by having insightful conversations about the antiques and their stories.

Hey I am Clark! Microcampus has been a spectacular experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. This experience transformed me and taught me many life lessons. Now that I am in Shanghai, I miss the clear skies, the amazing food, and all the loving memories the Voyagers crew had together. To future Microcampus students: cherish your time in Xizhou and always listen to Mr. T and Ms. Mai, as they are trying to stop a problem before it becomes one.
