At dinner, more kids joined us, Yuntie from Guangxi, Liangliang from Hunan, Na from Hubei, Zhenliang from Anhui and the last one to arrive – Zhongling from Liaoning. This trip is also their first trip to Beijing, except for Liangliang, who had three surgeries in Beijing for his feet.Sounds like a great group of kids. You can find the report of day 2 here.
Yuntie, Zhenliang, and Zhongling, due to their young age and physical condition, came with a chaperone. Even though Lianliang needs a wheelchair or a crutch to move around, he insisted that he didn’t need a chaperone. The reason: “I don’t want to give extra work to the ayis at the institution, and they are very busy already and tired. I knew that I could manage the trip on my own, and I feel proud that I could do it.”
Still hoping for change
