Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that I would be living and working in China when I began teaching almost 20 years ago. China was never a place on my radar, however, in just this short period of time I am glad and quite grateful for the opportunity to see and experience it. The following photos are of my one night camping trip at The Great Wall… it was unreal. We hiked and climbed the Lakeview Section of the Wall. That took us about 3 hours! After that we had to pitch our tents, eat and try to relax. Such was not the case for many of the kids…they were awake most of the night! I survived my first foray w the “squatty potty” which was fine when the thing was somewhat clean. At least they were private ones and not ones in which you had several in one place, but no partitions as is normally the case w public toliets here. Overall, it was a very surreal and spiritual time and I’m grateful to be a part of this magic.
