Katie and Aly and the Forbidden City in Beijing, China.

While seeing the sights in Shanghi – China’s largest city Dabi saw the worlds fast train which travels at a speed of 300 mph.  Dabi also went up into the world’s largest building but was afraid of heights and didn’t come out of the back pack.  The most memorable was when silk worms crawled on Katie and Alex’s hands.  They were so ugly, the worms were cute.  The toilets were very different than ours at home and it took some getting use to. Dabi got to do some shopping while in this huge city.

 

  • Dabi traveled via planes, trains, bike, rickshaw, boat and bus with these Girl Scouts (6,997 Hong Kong) miles from their home in the Bitterroot  Valley, MT to Beijing, Xi’an Shanghai and Hong Kong.
  • Dabi never complained about being packed away in a backpack and toted to  the Great Wall of China, Tienanmen Square, the forbidden City, famed  Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an (even met the farmer that discovered the clay treasures) a silk factory, a lunch with a hutong family, the highest  building in the world, a visit to a high school and a game of basketball  with Chinese students, rode a dragon boat and saw the south china sea.Dabi also saw very poor people in china including beggars and shocking
    environmental pollution.
  • There was a very noticeable lack of birds and  wildlife.  e also observed that the conditions the average Chinese person lived in was very different than our homes in Montana.  These Girl Scouts experienced a country and culture very foreign to our own and loved their experiences.  They also realized that “there is no place like home”!
