Well, it’s a bit chillier in China than in Laos and a wee bit more crowded. We couldn’t feel more welcomed than by our warm, friendly host from Beijing 57 (a highschool in Beijing Nobles has a partnership with), Cherry, and ZhiJun Li, a Nobles parent, global entrepreneur, and now generous friend.
In the last twenty-four hours we have eaten delicious food, had engaging conversations, visited the Dandelion School, and seen the National Museum. On the horizon is an evening concert at the National Theater, a visit to the Great Wall and the Forbidden City, a day at Beijing 57 (where Ben will be signing the formal partnership agreement), a day at Beijing Normal University, the best university for teacher education in China, and then off for an amazing ten days in Tibet with ZhiJun!
