Day 1 After a 30 hour day of travelling I arrived at our Hotel for the week, and very nice it was too!! Our First day was simply amazing. We were treated by dignitaries and met the other principals who warmly welcomed us to China. I felt like a dignitary myself with all the first class treatment! After the speeches we had tea, along with an exotic array of buns and cakes, and afterwards we spent an hour learning Chinese and painting! See my effort below!! After that it was lunch and then back to change for an afternoon visit to the Yellow Crane Tower which was breathtaking! That evening it was time for the banquet, another amazing feast of traditional Chinese food ( octopus and chicken feet were on the menu!) Day 1 complete and a very happy but tired teacher off to bed!!
