Today, our group started a new chapter in their lives. Our program has come to an end but each student begins their own individual adventures. Today, we said our goodbyes to Luke who flies off to Taiwan to be with family; Michael who is off to relax in Bangkok, and Elizabeth to the beaches of Hainan. On Sunday, Michal will follow Luke before heading to the Philippines and beyond; Reina will embark to Thailand for a few weeks of individual travel; and Kate will head to Chengdu to meet up with family and guide them around the country. Mandy hasn’t gotten enough of Yunnan yet and will be traveling with her homestay family for a week before showing her own family around. Though we are all going our separate ways, the bonds we created this year will keep us close for a lifetime. Safe travels everyone!
