Chendgu CEFLS has arrived

February 21, 2012

We woke this morning and went for a walk after we finished packing. We explored the area around the hotel visiting the newer restored hutong and also the older traditional hutong. It was a great walk as we did some shopping for snacks, tea and baked goods at the local huton produce market. After our walk we headed to the airport for our 2 1/2 hours flight to Chengdu. We were greeted by an administrator and teacher from the school who took the students to the school to meet their host families. I cannot wait until tomorrow morning to hear about the students first night with their host family.
