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



Lijiang,


the Great Wall,


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