Day 3: Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost.

~Tolkien

Day three was our first day of "real school" at the microcampus. We did math and went over our core subjects, and Madeline explained the math really well to me. After it all, we went to a resturant in town and discussed Noah's MUN debating techniques, among other things that will lead to the downfall of us all. We were a little rambunctious, but we're always told to be so quite at the Linden Centre that it was definitely appreciated. I have so little for this entry, I'll add pictures later!

Hi from mom

I'm really loving looking at everything you and the other students are doing. This is all right up your alley and I can tell you are already growing a lot from the experience! Pay attention to yur wellness-wear sunscreen and drink lots of water! Love you.

Hello, I'm Madeleine. I was in the pilot Microcampus program in 2012. In Xizhou, I researched Bai Minority Clothing because of my interest in the patterns and embroidery on Bai clothing. Though a seemingly lackluster topic, I found that my project became less and less about clothing, and more about the preservation of traditions in a village that is becoming more and more exposed to the world outside of the valley. I welcome you to take a look at my project, and see how my ideas and thoughts had developed over the course of a month!
