Up and running in Xi’an
After a brief internet hiatus, we are back in action.
Upon arrival to the school after a late flight two nights ago, we were met by the host families where our tired travelers were promptly whisked away by very excited families.
Yesterday morning we were welcomed by the Xi’an Foreign Language School complete with name on the marquee! We were introduced to the entire upper school of approximately 1300 students, and after I made brief remarks it was the students turn to introduce themselves.
After lots of laughter, some singing, juggling and Max doing the worm, we made our way to the courtyard where there was more conversation and photo opportunities.
At 5:30pm it was time to head home with the host families.
Yesterday was a lot of fun and it is safe to say we’ve already made some great friends.
Today, we go to see the much anticipated Terracotta Warriors.
More to come…
