Dear families and friends,
Outside Xi’an, deep in the misty and mysterious Cuihua Mountain, home to Chinese Daoist hermits for thousands of years, the Silk Road group has started their 6 week adventure. In the last few days, orientation has been in full swing. Apart from being briefed about safety, cultural dos and donts, equipped with survival Chinese, our young explorers also had traning on how to use squat toilet and had history lessons on China and Silk Road.
Yesterday morning, the group hiked up the nearby summit just after sunrise and enjoyed a spectacular view of the nearby mountain ranges. Congratuations to Abigail for completing her first ever hike.
Tomorrow the group will leave the tranquility of the mountain and head to the hustle and bustle of Xi’an, the ancient capital of China and officially start the journey of Silk Road. Stay tuned for more updated about our adventures.
