Today has been such a great day in the city of Kunming. We had a chance to explore the city by going to the beautiful park and then later on go shopping and play basketball at the park. Sadly though, there are only 2 days left in China. I hate to leave because I am in love with this experience. Last year when i was here in China, I came here as a tourist. But this years experience to me is so much better for the fact that we get to see the “real” China and not only what tourist see. i got a chance to live in a local family’s home in the village outside of li Jiang, we traveled in little buses instead of big tour buses, and also we stayed in little hostels/motels and not 5 star hotels.
It was all AMAZING. I would like to thank the company who sponsored us known as Where There Be Dragons. They opened up my eyes and that allowed me to realize that there is more to life than just video games and just chilling with friends all day long. They made me realize the real world and that there are people living worst than I am and I should always be grateful. There are 3 individuals that i might never see again and it will make me sad. They are Gong, Daniel, and Shiqi. I have built a strong relationship with all 3 of them that I will never forget. Gong, he is probably one of the most intelligent humans i have met. He just knows so much about the history of china and I hope he continues to have a great career. Shiqi, she is such a funny, cool, joyful person. She is a great person and i will miss her dearly. Last but not least, Daniel. Daniel is a really funny guy who always tries his best to make everybody happy in the group. He knows when its the right time to be serious, and when its the right time to be funny. I will miss every single one of them."

    [post_content] => We just left our mini hotel back in Lijiang. Kids have had a great experience in their homestay. In a away I have had my own home stay too, I got a little sick and stayed with the teachers so that they could watch me, but the lady here has been nothing but kind. When the teachers went, she prepared tea and rice porridge to help me feel better. Her husband invited me to watch TV with him. Although I barely understood a word the news was saying, I was really shocked that these strangers were so welcoming and kind. They treated me like their own. Every day ere in CHina, we have morning and evening meetings with our instructors. All the kids have been talking about amazing their homestay families are. They have said that the food is delicious. I think some kids were really excited about homestays like me, and others were really hesitant. But now I believe that each student is really enjoying their experience.

    [post_content] => Yesterday's experience was one that many us had never com close to experiencing before. My friends and I took a hike up a mountain to the community's water source. The hike was about 25 to 30 minutes long. We went up there for a very important reason. Aside from our obvious desires to spot great views, our main purpose was to see first hand the amount of pollution and damage that has resulted from the increase in tourism. The tourists go up the mountain to the water source and throw all their garbage away on all the surrounding areas closest to the water source. This is a major problem! The water source produces water to all the people who live in the Naxi village and other local people. Our leader for the day, Yariely, separated all students and chaperones into groups of 3. We were provided gloves and large garbage bags for our clean up purposes. We started collecting garbage from the top of the mountain and worked our way down. A common piece of trash was cigarette buts. They were everywhere. We saw parts of the water turning green and brown from all the trash. Our Where There Be Dragons guides and our group collectively asked the horse companies and the tourists who were there to stop littering and leaving their garbage behind on the mountain. It was important for us to take part in the cleanup project because we learned that it takes a lot for water to make it's way down the to the families who rely on access to clean water from the source for their survival. The water comes from a lake on the mountain which then runs down the mountain and into the canals. The water eventually makes its way into the homes. All and all, this trip has been really fun and an amazing learning experience for us all. THe water source has been providing clean water to the village for hundreds of years. I know we helped a great deal by cleaning but I can't help but wonder, will the water course keep getting polluted by tourists or will people stop damaging something so precious for the benefit of the entire community?

    [post_content] => Today we finished our five days homestay in this beautiful Nanyao Cun Village, Lashi Hai, Yunnan. We ended our time here with a potluck lunch at “Lily’s house,” where instructors and teachers stayed. Each student cooked a delicious Chinese dish and brought them to the potluck. Here is a glimpse of the authentic foods at our feast: Tomato and Eggs, Stir fried pork with chilly paper, Potato balls, Cucumber and mint salad, Yummy deep fried eggplant, and the list goes on.

 

As Dragons instructors, it is such a privilege to travel with such an outstanding and talented group. We were overwhelmed by how much our students have grown on this trip. We are so PROUD of the students! Our next stop is Lijiang to explore the ancient village for a few hours before we get on an overnight train to Kunming.

 

In Kunming, we will visit Green Lake, a Buddhist Temple, and begin to back our bags for a long journey back home.

Mr. Morgan gave us a prompt to write, which was "the difference experiencing the difference between the country side and the city-side, which has helped me understand the diversity of life because... " and this was my answer to the prompt:

"The difference experiencing the difference between the country side and the city side has helped me understand life because, now I've experienced how people's life is like in the country side, and if we really think about it, they live better than us, even though they might not have as much money, their lifestyle is better because they can grow their food in their back yard, everything is fresh, there is no pollution, they don't need cards to travel, and also they are very generous people and even if they don't have a lot, they will give you the best of what they have, and I think that is super nice of them to do that. Also, before I cam to China, I used to be an ignorant person and I didn't consider their lifestyle, but now that I know how they live, I've changed my mind and I really think that they are amazing people for doing that I really thank our instructors for taking us there and making us open our eyes and see the lifestyle of ther people and making us consider them more that wa a great welcome present. THANKS!!!

    [post_content] => Today we woke to the best breakfast made by the really nice family hosting all of us near the Great Wall in rural China. Immediately after breakfast, we played a couple games to help us get more acclimatized to living in China. For example, one of the games involved practicing squatting so that we would be better prepared to use traditional toilets here.

After lunch, we interviewed the man who did all of the cooking. He told us about his life as a chef in Beijing and why he chose to open up his home to foreign guests.

Before dinner we hiked up the beautiful Great Wall of China. Unlike other tourists, we climbed up the wild side, which is rarely seen by tourists. It was so hard to get up there, but we did it and it was all worth the physical and mental efforts.

When we got up there we took many pictures, we did this very nice opening ceremony activity that helped us a lot. We also wrote a journal entry about why the summer of 2015 is the best. Then some of us shared what we wrote.

Then we came back down from the wall and ate dinner. I had to choose what was better lunch or dinner, but I couldn't choose. It was soooo hard because they were both so amazingly delicious. Then we had a meeting and it helped to better define our roles on the course. What roles? We all have roles or jobs that we are responsible for each day. Each day it is different, like today I'm the "journalist", and tomorrow there will be a new journalist.

Keep following along with our journey!

Waking up at the base of the Great Wall

Nyah Rivera,China Asian Studies Academy

Description

Today we woke to the best breakfast made by the really nice family hosting all of us near the Great Wall in rural China. Immediately after breakfast, we played a couple games to help us get more acclimatized to living in China. For example, one of the games involved practicing squatting so that we would […]

An Incredible First Day

We had an incredible first day out in Xiangshuihu at the wall, building exciting for the journey to come. We’ve had a bit of trouble with the internet, which can be expected throughout China, and so we have emailed these photos, but expect better connectivity for narrative upon arrival into Beijing.

    [post_content] => I just spoke with the Dragons instructors and Asian Studies Academy group who are on the bus heading out of Beijing to the village of Xiangshuihu where they will be hosted by the Kou family in a traditional farmhouse setting. The group is excited and jet lagged so upon arrival they'll have a simple meal and head straight to bed. Tomorrow they will conduct their orientation and safety briefings and take a beautiful hike up to a remote area of the great wall.

Stay tuned for photos and initial reflections.
