Beijing 1993 kids

Beijing 1993 kids, originally uploaded by Travlr.

It was taken at a primary school in Beijing in May, 1993 - the school was an obligatory part of our tour of the city. We peeked in on a few classes (this one is the first grade), and some exercises and singing that the kids did.

I traveled to China with a group of medical personnel - we were all working in a hospital in Korea at the time. China has changed a lot since then. They were paving the highway from the airport to Beijing (with no mechanized equipment), and we saw very few cars anywhere in the city - just a sea of bicycles. Of course, kids are pretty much the same everywhere.
