Off to China today, with nine students, and another teacher. We will spend three days in Beijing, a lot of time in Kunming, a day in Dali, four days in Shaxi and three days in Shanghai. Shaxi and Shangahi are new to me, and I am looking forward to seeing both.
My last trip to China was two years ago. I had a very good time, though I was experiencing China very much as an anxious first-time chaperone. I did write some poetry based on my experience, and I hope this time will give me much to think about too.
I will be back on June 30, and until then this blog is probably on hiatus.
