Day 9: Final day in Changsha

Today was our final full day with our host students in Changsha. We started out the morning with a series of activities that the students of Mingde high school had prepared. We listened to the students play traditional Chinese instruments, and learned about Chinese opera, cuisine, and food styles. After the activities we ate our last lunch in Changsha. In the afternoon we participated in a USA vs China basketball game, which the USA team won. We ended the school day with the official farewell ceremony. There were speeches from Mr. Bray, SPA students, and Mingde students, and a video chronicling the exchange (produced by one of the Mingde host students) was also played. The SPA girls also taught everyone how to do the ChaCha slide, and got the whole room to participate. Once the ceremony was over, we all went off with our host students for our last evening in Changsha.
