Last week's field trip was really fun. But I seriously didn't listen to anything the teacher was saying about where we were. And I didn't really take a whole lot of pictures either. It was just beautiful and nice to be outside, even though it was a little chilly/windy and had rained the night before. And it was fun to just walk around and laugh with friends.

We crossed the Yangtze River. 3rd longest in the world.

Beautiful pathways

What I did catch was that the location of the first place we went to is historically significant, but the building there was only built in 2001 because the original guy who wanted to build it however long ago ran out of money. But it's a cool building, let's be real. And it was up a small mountain, so there was a great view.

I loved the lanterns.

We LOVE the English translations,
they are always hilarious.

Chinese people are short. Brandon is not.

I luff him.


This is to show how windy it was!
Did I mention I loved the lanterns?

And the second place was at the bottom of the small mountain and it is where the Treaty of Nanking was signed, which leased Hong Kong to Great Britain. I didn't take any pictures there, but here is one from above, we could see it from the first place.

Very exciting, can't you tell?

But let's be honest for a minute here. This is really what all of these field trips actually look like:
