Goodbye, Grasslands. Hello (again), Hohhot.

Here’s a list of the things we did today:
  1. We woke up for the last time (during this trip, at least) in our cozy yurts in the grasslands.
  2. We ate our last breakfast in the grasslands in the big dining yurt.
  3. The boys (and Ms. Jin) went for a ride on a fleet of small ATVs.
  1. We finished packing.
  2. We boarded the bus and headed back toward Hohhot.
  3. On the outskirts of Hohhot, we toured a giant, ultra-modern dairy products facility, one of the largest of its kind in the world.
  4. We checked back into our hotel in Hohhot (the same one we stayed in before).
  5. We ate lunch at a simple but delicious noodle shop just down the road from the hotel.
  6. We saw the new Transformers film (in English, with Chinese subtitles) at a movie theater in an enormous 12-story shopping mall about a mile from the hotel.
  7. We ate dinner at a barbecue karaoke restaurant near the mall/movie theater.  Several students (and teachers) took a turn with the microphone.
  8. We walked back to the hotel, arriving back in the lobby at 11:30 PM.
Time for bed!
