Go West Young Man.
May Day Holiday is upon us and the students are deep in the throes of testing. Three days of test morning and night until they can finally have a break.
And I cannot begin to tell you how their eyes light up when they say they are going home. There is something pretty amazing when you ask them where they want to go if they could go anywhere in the world and they answer,
Well, I am doing the opposite. Its a long flight for me today after I make it four hours to Yinchuan.
The West beckons and I'm going to see how Urumqi treats me for the next week. Home of flaming mountains, salt lakes, petrified forests, Uygurs and raisins.
Back in May if the camels don't eat me.
