Opening Ceremony and Ancient Town

Much to see and do on our first full day in Chongqing!

Today we participated in the opening ceremony for the Chinese Proficiency Competition for Students from Foreign Schools. All five of our American delegate students did an outstanding job with their introductions. All the students from each nation did a brief presentation. Also, the ceremony itself was packed with peformances in a display of Chinese culture and history. This event was held at the Chongqing Normal University, which has a huge brand new campus. Below are a few pictures from the event.

Later in the afternoon, we visited the 3,000 year old town of Ci Qi Kou. The place was packed with people, but everyone really enjoyed it.

It has been very interesting to talk with teachers from around the world. We are looking at ways in the near future to connect our students at the international level since through this project we have begun to establish so many relationships. All are programs share many similarities as well as clear differences.
