The next morning everyone slept in a bit, but then it was right back into another exciting agenda.  Friday was, after all, our last full day together as a group and we had to take advantage of every minute.

The first activity of the day was calligraphy.  Tian introduced the family to Chinese characters and writing system, and then she taught them how to do basic calligraphy.  Everyone used normal paper and pencils at first but eventually graduated to the real deal – calligraphy brushes, special ink, and rice paper.  Tian’s parents also helped out.

I need a volunteer.

Be one with the brush.

Use your right hand, Eli.

Good form.

Why not use a blue highlighter?
