This post is a bit late, but I still think it’s worth writing home about. (I guess my home is the internet.)
Sarah, along with her Gong Fu class from the Art Academy, was recently featured on local Zhejiang Province TV along with other students around Zhejiang Province in an international student talent show. It was fun, but long and tiring. Here’s the home video of the performance (Sarah’s in the back, with the red wig):
As a reward, we (as in 500+ international students from around Zhejiang Province) got to go on a weekend trip to Linhai and Taizhou, about a 3 hour drive from Hangzhou to the coastal area of China. Unfortunately Joel couldn’t come along since he had to teach, but nonetheless Sarah had a good time.
We stayed in a really nice hotel, and visited the Taizhou International Wen Wu School, a private training school for kids 5-18 years old to learn martial arts. Very impressive! (Actually, just click on my friend Dave’s blog because he took much better pictures than I did.)
After that we did some sightseeing of the local old relics, like the South China Great Wall (which apparently is NOT part of the Northern Great Wall) and the scenic and lovely gorge area, the name of which I have forgotten.
