Today, I am one of 28 students and 2 faculty from Texas Wesleyan embark on a trip to Guiyang, China. We join 37 other Americans as official delegates to Fort Worth’s newest sister city.
After a brief voice lesson, I hopped in the car of John Fisher, head of the Wesleyan music department and we began our trip to the airport. He and I had a great time sharing our stories of travel misfortune.
Check in at the airport was a breeze and everyone seemed to be excited about our upcoming adventure.
Unfortunately it’ll be 18 more hours before the real fun begins, but in the interim we all took the opportunity to get to know one another better.
It’s two hours to Chicago and then 16 to Beijing and then the adventure truly begins.
I’m hoping to publish blog posts at least every day. This truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity that we are all ready to begin.
