Bye bye China, and hello Laos!

How time flies!

Yesterday marked our last full day of adventure in China. The two-day student led expedition in Jinghong, the capital city of the tropical Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Region took us to local gardens and museums alike, also allowed us some time to explore this city on the Mekong by ourselves.

Last night, the students led a simple yet meaningful ceremony by the bank of the Mekong where we all reflected on our adventures in China and shared something that we each want to leave behind and bring with us for the next section of our journey. Here are some pictures from the ceremony.

Today we will take a bus in Jinghong to cross into Luang Namtha in Laos. Stay tuned and more from Laos soon.
