The Old Alleys of Beijing

On our final day in Beijing we visited a public school in an old palace that used to belong to the last emperor's uncle. We then toured the incredible area on bikes soaking up the atmosphere of old Beijing. I later reconnected with the students and our faculty who had a great day visiting classes and talking with students at the Beijing Experimental High School. I cannot say enough about how terrific our students have been on this trip. They have been enthusiastic, adventurous, and helpful at every turn and have been soaking up the very personalized tour we have been enjoying. I have never witnessed a student tour quite like this one. We have our Chinese friends and families joining us at every location we visit and it has been wonderful to see the close friendships between our Chinese, American, and Brazilian students.
