National Museum, Lama Temple, Pearl Market & Duck Dinner
(Written by Mr. Shifrin)
We had another enriching day in Beijing!
Our first stop was the . Our student were great and patient as we made our way through the security screening.
There was a powerful Salvadore Dali exhibit. Many of the student enjoyed the gifts to the head of state. This included stuffed swans from President Nixon and some silver bowls from the Clintons and Obamas.
Everyone found some balance and inner peace at the Lama Temple. Cindy, Haglis, Lexi and Harry taught the teachers how to pray at the first Buddha temple. Bow three time in all directions.
We finished the day off with a duck dinner. It was enjoyed by all and included some fish. It may have been first time students had been served a whole fish with eyes included. My table enjoyed see me squirm as another student ate the eye.
