Sabbatical in China – Spring Semester

Smeltzer Family Photos

Deirdre started her journey alone

and started work right away.

Teaching, making cookies, and exploring the city

passed the time until Meg and Claire arrived.

After a little travel to see the sights,

it’s time for food and games with new friends

in a new place with new customs.

Graduation and farewell parties mark the end of semester,

but it takes a visit to Lang Zhong


the Great Wall,

and a few restaurants with with the whole family to make the journey complete.
