After fourteen hours of air travel I made it to Beijing. It has been
an amazing experience thus far. You can see some of my pictures
below. The first evening we were treated to an authentic Chinese
dinner served in their traditional family style.
The next day we ventured out to the Great Wall of China. It was truly
an awe inspiring sight. The wall is over two thousand years old and
can be seen from space. Look up a few facts on The Great Wall and
share them in comments on the blog.
This morning we held the opening ceremony for our summer school. It
was so exciting to see the school and meet the students; it’s all very
different from Pinewood. I have a few pictures from today but will
share more later to give you a better idea of what the school here is
Internet access is not consistent here in China but I will try to
continue to post on the blog as often as I can.
Here are some pictures from the school we are visiting, Fengtai School.
And here are some pictures from the Great Wall of China!
