Adventure in China – Pender Is. Library
Sunday afternoon at the Pender Is. Library presents:
A Three Year Adventure in China with Dianne and Peter Wilson
Sunday Feb. 4 – 2-4 pm.
In August 2008, Dianne and Peter Wilson embarked on a new adventure in China. What started out as a 2 year commitment turned into 3 years of living, working, and travelling in this vast and varied country. Dianne had the opportunity to be the first Canadian ESL Director for the Dalian Maple Leaf International High School which was located near the small town of Jinshitan (ca. 70,000 people) over an hour away from the city of Dalian in Liaoning Province. Peter willingly went along and worked as one of the ESL teachers, an “unofficial tour guide”, and a substitute teacher in the BC high school program.
During their 3 years, when not working, they travelled to several parts of China. A few of the well-known places they visited were Dandong, Xi’an, Beijing, Shanghai, Dali, Lijiang, Guilin, Yangshuo, Hong Kong, and Macau. As well, they travelled to small villages and rural areas. Their many experiences left them with wonderful memories, not to mention thousands of photographs. Their challenge for the upcoming presentation at the library is to pare the photos down to about 200!
All welcome to this free presentation, refreshments by donation. Seating is limited.
