Gould Academy Four Point- 9th grade, in one picture
OVERHEARD IN CHINA: “Mr Alford, you don’t have a bald spot, you have a hair spot.”
(Note: This was my last-week post, but for some reason it never posted. So I will post it this week, and post this week’s next week. Somehow, by magic, I will catch up.)
Today is our last day in China, with the 9th grade class. Tomorrow we have a day of travel that will turn Tuesday in to a Tuesday-and-a-half (nice if you happen to be Will K, whose birthday is tomorrow). There have been so many moments, so many meals, so many sights, that if I tried to put everything onto a GLOG it would fill every day this week.
So I’m just going to sum up the week with one picture.
Mind you, I took over 1,000 pictures, so I have to choose wisely. I won’t show you the out-of-focus shot of the Forbidden City, nor will I show the picture of some of us falling down a mountain (see Andee for information on that one), and I definitely won’t show you the picture I took of a steaming pile of roasted sheep hooves covered in sesame seeds (Spirit of full disclosure: I did not eat these). The 9th grade point is all about discovering new cultures, new places, new language, and a little bit about yourself and your place in the world. I think this picture does it nicely.
Thank you, Kasmira, for this moment.
