Well, another semester in the books. I know what you're thinking. "But it's only November! How are you done with your semester already?"
The IES Abroad program is set up around a 2-week mobile learning field trip to Thailand and Laos to apply what we've learned, so our in-class final exams (and classes) all end today so that we can depart tomorrow without the need to worry about classes or other schoolwork. Thus, my semester is essentially over!
Granted, we still have presentations to prepare and give for our core class, and a regional symposium (where we simulate representing Southeast Asian nations, the Asian Development Bank, etc. and talk about important issues in a diplomatic forum) but that work is neither here nor there for me. In my eyes, I'm done.
I'll try to keep updating as I'm down south, although I don't know what sort of internet connection (if any) I'll have, so I'll have to play it by ear.
In the meantime, I'll leave you all with a couple of pictures I've taken from around Kunming in the last couple of weeks!
Old and new juxtaposed.
A shot from a bridge here in Kunming.
And that's all I've got for now!
Catch y'all later!
