Sorry for the lack of updates, internet at the hostel hasn’t been the most reliable the past few days. However, as of Monday I’ve moved out of the hostel and down the street into a hotel for Amity’s Summer English Program Orientation. As of Friday afternoon, the other interns and I have completed the Service Learning portion of our internship with Amity. For the last week of the service learning we spent our time at the Amity NGO Development Center and the Amity Senior Care Center. I definitely enjoyed the opportunity to see a sampling of the variety of ways which Amity serves its community.
Once this orientation ends on Thursday night my team members and I will be flying out to the Guangxi Province to the village of Long’an on Friday morning. Nanjing has been an amazing city so I know I’ll definitely miss it, but at the same time I’m looking forward to seeing rural China. Until then!
