This will be the start of my Microcampus journey, and I am eager to start this experience by selecting topics that I will be exploring for the next few months, including the 28 days I will be spending in Xizhou. After having many project topics thrown towards me, I knew that I had to narrow down a large amount of these ideas to reach my final three choices. I started thinking: what would I be most interested in, and will it affect me not only as a student but as a person as I learn?

Before we began our adventrure I already knew  that the children in Xizhou do not go to modern day kindergartens and elementary schools like we did, based on pictures and the information we have received so far. I already know about growing up without all the “modern” tools since I went to an outdoor kindergarten, where the main focus was on nature and being outside.

In this Phase, I will be building my knowledge on the Flying Tigers in order to aid my research in Xizhou. This will be working document with information being added until my inquiry project is 100% complete. I will be gathering information through, interviews, books, and online sources. I have made the decision to research the Flying Tigers during my time in Xizhou in Phase 1 and laid out the big questions that will guide my investigation for my inquiry project.

To be honest with you, this was the most tiring day of the microcampus yet. We left for Dali Old Town after lunch and headed there to buy our food for the next 2 days we were camping. After that, we hiked up the mountain which was so tiring because we had to carry our hiking bags up the mountain. When we arrived, we set up camp, I tented with Meera because she didn't know how to set up a tent and Madeleine roomed with Mirabel. KT roomed with Maddie. We ate dinner outside then went to sleep.

Today during our Daily Video Shout Out, Luca, Kevin and I went to the Daily Video Shout Out in an old abandoned courtyard. We saw it from some blood looking material. It was extremely creepy so, being the responsible students we were, we decided to take a look around in the courtyard it was pointing to, to check it out. There was no one there but a great spot to film our daily shout out. While filming, we started to hear footsteps and the sturdy thud of a hammer. We quickley ended the video and yelled out to say hi to anyone that was there. No one responded so we quickley ran out.
