We arrived and were invited to join the senior students celebrate International Day in the school Gym. The students ...
... smiling faces of the local tea farmers and their families. We were further rewarded for our journey from the big city with spectacular views of rows upon rows of tidy tea bushes growing all around us.
After a brief rest stop, and photo session, we began our hike up into the tea terraces. We were cautioned many times not to pick any tea leaves ourselves as the precious leaves are quite expensive, and we would incur a fine of 3000RMB, or approximate $500 dollars. ...

We were amused by the family groups all wearing the same clothes like a uniform and we are getting used to being stared at because we are westerners. One thing is for sure we are in the minority over here.
About 4.00pm we headed back to Jianding and after another fast train ride we were home about 8.30pm.
