Day 1: Arrived in Shenzhen and enjoyed a traditional Chinese luncheon

From Dr. Alan Weathers, “After a 28 hour trip from the time we left Porter’s to the Shenzhen hotel, the weary travelers had time for a quick shower in their hotel room before a wonderful Chinese-style luncheon. The local Hong Kong/Cantonese food was the first opportunity for the girls to test their ability with chopsticks.  In the afternoon, we took a walking tour of the area, starting with the beautiful nearby beach, then a street with more traditional Chinese shops, and finally an outdoor shopping area with many familiar Western brands. The day finished off with another great meal in the hotel and a brief huddle to discuss the logistics of tomorrow’s welcome ceremony at SFLS. It was the end of a very long day.”

The group is tired and all are checked into their rooms at the hotel for the night and looking forward to their first day of school at SFLS tomorrow!
