Our services learning parture is called Ms. Duan, she is 60 years old and are a Bai minority women. She owns a small souvenir street vender near the market, and have been working there for a few decades now.
We have learned a lot about the history of Xizhou and her life. For example, she talks about that when she was still a kid, she is the only girl out of 64 boys in her class. It is interesting, because is not the same thing now.
Ms. Duan told us how poor and un-wealthy their life was in the past. The school fee is about 1.5 rmb. However, not that many people in Xizhou could afford it. However, after a while, when the tourist started to come to Xizhou, it got richer and richer, now building are have been built up, and people here get richer as well the benefit of the tourist.
On Day 26 we shared our services learning video to our parture. We plan to start our services learning sharing at three 0' clock. However, she showed up at around 14:00 because she needs to leave at 15:00. We quickly told the others to get their services learning parture so we could start showing them the video. She was dressed in Bai clothing, and she was performing the Bai dance in the main court yard. After the dance, we showed her around the Linden Centre. She is really curious of the Linden Centre. However, the trip has to come to a end.
At 14:45, we start the service leaning sharing. Mr. T ask us not to look at our own video and look at our services learning parter so we could see their reaction of the video. Mr. Zhao are also there, he is a tailor and Ms. Duan and Mr. Zhao are used to be classmate. When the video start playing, Ms. Duan is look really happy. After everyone played the video, Ms. Duan want to show Ms. Linden her dance. Over all we had a great time together
