Action Packed in Xi’an!
Day 2 in Xi’an has been a blast! The students were thrilled to see us this morning, although they had a good night with their host families. We started off the day with an introduction ceremony. We were introduced to the student body of 3,000 and then all of our students individually introduced themselves with great poise. It was impressive!
After a tour of the school, the students were escorted to a primary school art class where they showed off their painting skills.
They then had a serious soccer game with a team of 4th graders! They were actually equally matched as the score of 3-3 proves (the 4th graders were clearly really good!).
Another highlight of the day was witnessing the whole school performing perfectly choreographed calisthenics. We were all fascinated, and have video footage of Matt and joining in. It was a full day, and everyone was quite tired when we parted ways. Here are a few of the pairs as they were heading out.
The rest will be posted tomorrow. I am sure they will be ready to roll as we head to the Terracotta Warriors!
