Kunming: Dumplings, Music and More

March 19, 2016

(Written by Mr. Whittington)

Since we didn’t see the kids today we decided to share some pictures from Friday’s day in school.  The morning was a combination of making dumplings, making and eating rice noodles, and getting to know students from our host school.  After the welcoming luncheon it was all about the music, as we learned and sang traditional Chinese songs, then learned about the history of popular music in China, from the Jazz of the 1930’s to the Hip-Hop of today.
