Day 25- Not any special day...

TODAY WAS MY BIRTHDAY :D

 

It was especially fun today. I woke up from camping and we cooked leftover marshmallows! When we went back to Yang's, Ms. Stagg gave me some presents from my grandmother! Huge thank you to Donnie for the amazing Frida Kahlo Watch and In Focus book! I've always loved that book so much (: The rest of the day we did a lot of working During the cake time, we had a lot of fun! I went around a gave thanks for all of the very, very special people on the microcampus trip. It was a great day. 

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!
