Finally Some Sunshine!

Such a beautiful day as I was walking to class this morning! It has been a long and dreary type of week in Evansville, so seeing the sun out today was wonderful after all of the rain and cloudy days.

Week 1 in China

 

Three days after arriving in Shanghai, I am beginning to adjust to the sites and smells of a huge, busy city. After a quick dinner at my first Chinese McDonalds and a night’s sleep, I spent Sunday morning exploring Luxun Park and the surrounding streets with my professor. The park was full of individuals practicing Tai Chi, dancing, karaoke, playing card games, running, and walking. I enjoyed listening to the conversations and music that floated from one end of the park to the other. As we walked around the park we were many people stared and several individuals said “hello.” During the next few days, my professor and I ran in the park. I was amazed at the number of people who used the park in the mornings. We had to zigzag in and out of the many crowds. I saw some of the same people each morning and found it interesting to watch some of the people clapping and singing while they walked.

It's always nice to spend time outside after classes-who can't relax with a view like this? If only I had some Jazzman's coffee...

Exciting Excavation

I am really enjoying my time here. The area is just beautiful and I am so excited to travel and explore the country. Excavating is tiring, but very rewarding and I am finding that once getting into "the zone" I can just keep going and completely lose track of time!

A New Adventure

Israel is an amazing place! Surprisingly, it is not too hot. Actually it is quite cool in the mornings and when the wind picks up. Being able to watch the sunrise everyday has been a magical experience. 

A New Day's Sunrise

Before I left for Israel, I just wanted to go to the beach and watch the sunset. Instead I was watching the sunset from the seat of an airplane. After being up over 24 hours with very little rest, I arrived on the Kibbutz, meeting several new people. We said goodnight and prepared for a 4:00AM wake-up call. We slept in until 4:30AM and waited at the bus stop by 5:00AM to start our day. Being mine and many others first time to Israel, Norma took us on a tour of Tel Jezreel. As we learned the history we slowly descended down to the work site, but not before we could witness something majestic.
