Good Evening East-West,

We arrived in Hangzhou early this morning and had a very busy day! After enjoying an energy packed buffet breakfast, we were on our way to our sister school. There we had a meeting with the principal and some student ambassadors, a campus tour, and the opportunity to sit in on some AP classes.
