Experience exciting and mind-expanding immersion in a vibrant new culture

China Summer 2017

Starting in the metropolis of Beijing, we work with school children in their quest to learn English and visit the amazing sites of the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Olympic sites and others.  We will sample the riches of modern Chinese life and traditions such as Beijing duck and night markets.  In the mountains we will camp at the Great Wall and visit local farmers as we explore the countryside. Next, on a bullet train, we will travel to Xi’an, where we will explore this important city and ascent a sacred mountain, ride bikes on the ancient city walls and finally, we visit the Terra Cotta Warriors. We  fly south to Sichuan province to learn about and work with pandas in their preservation.  As we learn about and enjoy the local cuisine of this province, we will explore the countryside and  encounter monkeys at Mt. Emei.  Finally we will visit the famous Giant Leshan Buddah,  a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Thailand 2017: Trip 1

Thailand—where wild elephants still roam through jungle thickets; where Buddhist monks’ pre-dawn chanting gives way to stunning sunrises; where shimmering lights of Bangkok flank the winding banks of the Chao Phraya River. Thailand where villagers work steadily in steamy rice fields, and turquoise waters sparkle, calling us to explore their treasures.

Thailand 2017: Trip 2

Thailand—where wild elephants still roam through jungle thickets; where Buddhist monks’ pre-dawn chanting gives way to stunning sunrises; where shimmering lights of Bangkok flank the winding banks of the Chao Phraya River. Thailand—where fireflies glitter on mangrove waterways, and a storm of color overtakes floating markets. Villagers work steadily in steamy rice fields, and turquoise waters sparkle, calling us to explore their treasures.
