Chengdu 2 Has Landed
First, to help avoid confusion we refer to our two Chengdu groups and Chengdu 1 (the group with the Bakers at Chengdu Experimental Foreign Language School) and Chengdu 2 (the group with the Whittingtons at The Foreign Language Experimental School Affiliated with Tanghu Middle School.) Trying saying that three times fast and you’ll see why we simply call ourselves “Chengdu 2.” Anyway, Chengdu 2 has arrived safely and the kids were greeted lavishly with armloads of flowers and smiles, albeit some of them nervous smiles, all around. Since it was already after dinner time, and we all know kids must eat, and eat, and … they headed off quickly for dinners with their host families. We’ll get together in the morning for a greeting ceremony, and then a day in school. More to come as our adventure continues.
