Clark W.'s Journal

This is my first journal on the Microcampus site!

So excited.

I am a Microcampus student from the V group called Clark, and I am extremely excited about my Microcampus experience.  After my fellow V group students and I were assembled into a Skype chat, I began feeling like all of us are a community ready for challenges ahead of us.  Apparently, what I am writing now is a part of this challenge, to record my feelings before, during and after the trip.  

I am Clark W. and I am super excited about my adventure in Xizhou, Yunnan. I was born in Lancaster, Pennslyvania, but spent most of my life in Shanghai. My inquiry project will be focused on Local Antique Trade/Tea Horse Trail because I am passionate and curious about the history and stories behind antiques and the trade's effects on Xizhou. I hope that I could explore China outside the "bubble" and learn to be more independent throughout this amazing experience.
