Beijing World Park

We took our two favorite studetns with us yesterday as we traveled the at the Beijing World Park.
Sydney Harbour Bridge

Aggie and Lina are two middle school studetns that we both teach English at the private school we work for and I tutor in math after school. It was great that their parents trusted us foreign teachers to take them all the way across this large city by public transportation to a place we had never been to before. They maybe had been on the subway once before and only one of them had been to the park before. It took three subways and a bus, plus some walking, to get to the park, but half the adventure is getting to where you're going. We got to ride another of Beijing's subway lines that we had not been on previously and see another part of the city we hadn't seen before. Some of these don't have titles or links because I don't remember what they are.

In the evening, after the World Park, we went to our follow Arkansas's friends apartment to have pizza and visit. DJ played with their two boys and new dog until the boys ran off to play with their friends and then she kept us entertained and found new things to get into.
