Hello from the village of 南尧村! Here are some of the things we’ve been doing these past few days:

  • Picking up trash at our village’s water source
  • Biking across the lake of 拉市海 to a monastery and playing soccer with the monks
  • Listening to presentations by students and instructors about China’s relationships with places such as Taiwan and Hong Kong

We’ll be in this village until early Saturday morning, when we begin our week-long expedition phase. Then, we’ll be in the city of Kunming for two weeks. 再见 for now!

Sounds like so much fun! Bet the talk about China’s relationship with Hong Kong was especially interesting to you. Keep your posts coming. We love hearing from you!!
