I forgot about this post and actually it has been sitting here in my draft folder for like 4 years now! Wowsers! Even the picture was still attached and uploaded. Well… I am glad for that because I had totally forgotten about this memory. I am glad to be reliving it now.
The lady that seems out of place, the redhead, is my wife, Jessie. We did this trip together during our first year of marriage. Literally a month after we got married (decided to do so 5 months before leaving for China), we left for this beautiful land. Glad we did. 🙂
INSTEAD! Here are some really CUTE 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th Grade children at an English “Salong” or an English meeting to help the best students of each class learn a little more English from the foreign teachers. Usually these meetings are an opportunity for the English teachers from both China and America (or other natively English-speaking countries) to chat and learn more about one another. The Chinese are really wonderful people and everything you have “heard” about them is likely inaccurate. I am truly blessed by these people and I hope we have a chance to go back someday.
