Spring Trip 2009: Sunday to Wednesday in Liaoning Province

My apologies for not writing earlier in the trip, but the internet connection at the hotel in Shenyang did not allow us access to much of the World Wide Web. It is almost Thursday morning, and your children are safely in their rooms at the Bohai Pearl Hotel in Dalian. We have had an excellent spring trip that has consisted of a great deal of learning and fun. Tonight we ate a late dinner at Pizza Hut where I had a slice of the tuna pizza for the very first time. It is certainly not your typical topping, but I highly recommend it. We left Dandong mid-afternoon where the students were excited to get a glimpse of North Korea. They could clearly see that the Middle Kingdom and the Hermit Kingdom are two very different nations. Monday was a designated "service" day although we have had the opportunity to serve in a variety of capacities throughout the trip. Yesterday was a very full day consisting of visits to the Shenyang Imperial Palace and Shenyang Botanical Gardens. It is amazing how much energy your children have! Tomorrow we will be going to the Laohu Pole Aquarium on what should be another beautiful day. Your children will be arriving home in less than 1.5 days. Many of them will have lots of pictures to show and stories to tell. I hope to write more and post some pictures before the school year comes to an end. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to teach them.
