For a holiday as big as Christmas day it can be a big concern spending the holiday away from home and in a foreign country. Thankfully though that concern did not reach the teachers of sunny school this year. Being surrounded by new friends has been a blessing over the past five months and my parents even managed to make it to Guilin for Christmas day and two weeks prior.
After engaging in a beautiful walk around the hills of Guilin and setting off some celebratory firecrackers we had a delicious banquet in a five star hotel surrounded by teachers, friends and my Chinese lecturer. An excellent way to celebrate the achievenents and success of 2016.
