Day 4 - April 1

Ni hao everyone,

Today we again enjoyed a very busy but memorable day.  Our Concert Band, Choir and Jazz Band performed on the Great Wall of China (Juyong Pass) and did quite well despite very trying circumstances such as high winds, and sunny but chilly weather weather.  

We all climbed the Great Wall, and most of us got to the highest point from the section we were visiting.  

In the afternoon we visited a Jade Factory (I believe many students got presents here for loved ones back home in Canada), then the Birds Nest stadium from the 2008 Olympics.  

We then enjoyed a spectacular Chinese acrobat/circus show, and one or our students got the chance to "volunteer" in one of the acts - it was priceless!  

Then dinner, and return to our hotel - many students are choosing to go to bed pretty early throughout this trip.

Tomorrow its a trip to the Beijing Capital Museum, Silk Market (ie. knock-off market) and performance at a local school.

Bye for now!
