Yunnan Nationalities Village
Today, the students and their host students visited the Yunnan Nationalities Village. The students were able to explore and check out highlights of the 26 different minority groups of the Yunnan province both by looking at important pieces of their cultures and experiencing some performances of traditions within the villages.

The preferred method of transportation around the villages.
A frenzy of smashing bottles…apparently gives you a safe life.
And also releases anger…but mostly was fun!
A quick rain shower at the end of our visit!
John introducing his host to the group at the end of the day (Mr. Penley’s assignment)
Chris introducing his host.
They all did a great job with their assignment…finding out three interesting things about their host. Tomorrow is a day spent with their host families so we won’t post tomorrow unless Mr. Penley has some more to add from today.
Hope all is well with you all back home!
