Oct.25, as our planned, we would go to San-jie
Zhang's home to make the investigation of
Tibetan Costume. With the help of our teacher
Mr. Pu, we borrowed two motorcycles. Jian-lin
Shan and Mr. Pu drove motorcycles. It was
the first time that I sat behind my classmate
in a motorcycle, so I was a little worried,
but the fact proved Shanlin's skill. With
mountains' back off, we spent a long period
of time to get to our destination - San-jie
Zhang's home. ((By
what made me felt very embarrassed was that
there was nobody in my home. And since I wasnot
used to taking the key with me, I even could
not enter to give a cup of tea to my teacher
and classmates. I didn't where my parents
were, maybe they went to pasture.
Mr. Pu didn't blame me, but took photos everywhere.
He said, 'You are so lucky to live in such
a beautiful place.'
If I talked to my parents in advance, it wouldn't
like this. This made me understand that there
always could be unexpected things happen.
We should make good preparation; afterwards
we can face it with confidence. (By
was a pity that there was nobody in San-jie's
home. We have to make a decision quickly,
or we'll waste
time. Mr. Pu said that we could go to Shama
Temple to have an interview, since last time
we got not enough pictures. Everyone agreed
and we marched to the temple.
But our road ended in front of a river. There
were a lot of stones in front, so we could
not drive motorcycle anymore. After we laid
our motorcycles aside, we began to walk. The
river prevented our walk, we took some time
to look for a way, but could not find. I seemed
that we had to make it with our hands. Everybody
was busying on taking stones to make a 'bridge'.
The work finished in 20 minutes. We felt quite
happy with the small 'bridge', since it was
the result of our cooperation. Isn't life
like this? If we work together, we'll find
there's no trouble that can not pass.
Afterwards we walked for a long time in road
in mountains. We didn't feel tired. Mr. Pu
kept talking jokes to us, and we arrived at
the gate of the temple in laugh. (By
much hardship, we finally arrived at the temple,
but we found there was no one in the temple.
'Nobody again!'. I didn't know who said this.
But how can we go back without any result?
So we wondered out of the temple, hope that
we could find something. When passed the dormitory
where the Lamas live, I suddenly saw some
beautiful drawings on the wall. Although they
were not obvious, I loved them very much.
We didn't need to find out who left these,
they were the things we got out of expectation.
(By Shan Jian-lin)
This is an experience meaningful. Although
it seemed that we got nothing, in fact the
children got so much inspiration: unite, making
good preparation and observing carefullyˇ
Teachers may talk about this in classroom
for many times, but their own experience will
make them a deep and real impression.
So I really found that we have learned much,
and all this may affect them for a whole life.
And what I got is that believe your students.
They are competent in fact.(By
