First of all, I have to thank all of our teachers for taking us on our awesome Education Outside the Classroom trip to Moganshan. About EOTC, my first impression was that it was amazing! Before going there, of course, I felt a little sad leaving my family and own home for a week. But once I got there and experienced a lot of different things I felt very independent and more like an adult.
On the first day of the trip, the hotel was a guesthouse and we had 10 people in our room. I really liked it because it was my very first time sharing a room with a lot of friends, and the best part of the hotel was that there was a bunk bed and I got to sleep on top!! It was amazing. The hiking we did on the second day was also very exciting! That was also my first time hiking for four hours. On the way to the top of the mountain, we also learnt about eco-tourism and caring for the environment.
On the third and fourth days we did some activities, like farming, raft building, cooking, and making baskets out of bamboo. Those activities were super fun and I really enjoyed them a lot. On the final day, I was happy and sad at the same time. I was finally going back home to join my family, but on the other hand, I was sad for the trip to be finished. Anyway, I took a lot of pictures to capture our awesome trip to Moganshan, and I brought home some cool souvenirs, as well.
Thanks to everyone again. I had the BEST EOTC TRIP EVER!!
