Off to China

Posted on Fri 08 April 2005
No, not me, but my oldest kid (he will be 14 next month). He left this morning for a 2 weeks journey in China that is organized by his school: a group of 15 children aged 12 to 15, driven by 5 adults.

Quite an exceptional trip, made possible by the fact that 2005 is "the year of France in China". They will start by visiting Beijing, and then will move by train (27 hours!) to a "little town" of about 1.5 million people in the south-west.

As it's his first trip outside Europe, he doesn't realise that more than the distance, what will most surprise him is the cultural difference. Certainly something he will remember for a very long time.
