Sports and Scares

Location: Jian’ou No. 1 Middle School, Fujian Province, China

We are finally healthy. Just in time for the annual school “sports meeting,” what all of our hosts call field day and a cultural festival rolled into one. Something we’ve never experienced. We threw ourselves into the activities, judging an English recitation/singing contest, watching our students run, and playing games like aeroplane chess (like ‘Sorry!’ but life-sized).

And, the week after, Halloween. Something our students have never experienced. They were so excited to dress up in costume, bring in their favorite foods, and give us some local treats. The rice pudding, wrapped in bamboo, was especially delectable.

Here is your first look at our school. Soon enough, there will be a video, and a photoessay covering the whole place. Stay tuned.
