Day 2 ~ China Study Trip

Hope you don't mind me sharing a few pics as I've not much crafting to show & no camera!

DD said she would try & leave me a comment if she gets the chance so thats another reason I'm posting!

I am so excited about making a scrapbook for my daughter..... why do I think there might be more than one being made!!!

Today, after a morning studying. (4 lessons with 10 minute breaks)

DD's group are off to Tian'anmen Square.

and also the Forbidden City.....

The Forbidden City was the Chinese imperial palace from the Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. It is located in the middle of Beijing, China, and now houses the Palace Museum. For almost five hundred years, it served as the home of emperors and their households, as well as the ceremonial and political centre of Chinese government.

I've got my fingers & toes crossed hoping DD remembers her camera today!

Thanks for looking. Gez.xx

  11. Do they get their tours in Chenese as well to help improve the language skills further? DH has been to the Forbidden City and says it's amazing. It's long enough ago that Tian'anmen Square didn't have quite the same connotations back when he was visiting, be interesting to know what they're actually told!

  12. Your daughter must be having a great time. Bet you miss her too!
