Good luck to 50 intrepid explorers who are currently in Beijing, China. This is the first year that we have run this particular trip; I'm sure it will be a great success.
A text from Mr Irvine, received earlier today,
We finally arrived at the Rainbow Hotel in Beijing on Friday, around 1 am local Time. After a short sleep we were up again. I was really pleased to see the students trying typical Chinese breakfast food, the small white dumplings were delicious. We are now on a bus heading north, a 60km bus journey, to the Great Wall. We are having a lesson on Chinese language, characters and culture en route.
Unfortunately my iPad seems unable to access my China Blog when I am in the hotel. I will try my best to keep you updated on our Chinese adventure.
We are running this trip jointly with Liberton High School - my former school.
