Welcome to Quanzhou, Welcome to Our School!

March 21, 2014

Our first full day in Quanzhou has been a very full and welcoming one.  We began with a welcoming ceremony, where each of our students had to introduce themselves to 3000 new friends.  After a morning in school, it was off to the Min Taiyuan Museum and a walk through the beautiful West Lake Park.  The day ended with a welcoming banquet in a hotel overlooking West Lake, where there were more speeches and gifts were exchanged.
