Hello friends and families! Here are a few photos from our first week in Kunming. Students are settling into a rhythm here in the city, becoming more comfortable with homestay families, Mandarin language, and using public transportation to get around town (and to their independent study projects). This Friday, students’ Chinese teachers took them on short field trips around the city; attached are some photos with their Chinese teachers. We also had a mid-course dinner as a group, then played a fun escape room-style game. Though we needed quite a bit of help and extra time, both groups ultimately succeeded in escaping! We have attached triumphant photos from both teams. Also attached is a photo of Ellie and her no-longer-missing onion pen(s). We will let the students explain that one. More yak posts coming soon!
