Jingzhou Elementary School
7.2.12 - 7.2.12 85 °F
Our highlight today was the visit to one of three rural elementary schools that Viking sponsors. Their initial investment in this school was 1 million Yuan. This was the last day of school, so the kids were riled up and ready to go home. The greeted us with a drum band, did a stage performance for us, and then we joined them in their classroom, where they sang for us and we sang some kids songs for them. It was an exciting morning.
As we had quite a distance to sail to get to Wuhan, we set sail as soon as we got on board. The Yangtze below the gorges flattens out to a broad country river, although still with quite a current.
The last night on board, so we had to do some packing to get ready for our adventure to Shanghai
