We woke up at 6am, feeling relieved, for we were to soon see our families, but also upset, as everyone had enjoyed the trip and wanted to stay. We got on the coach and had a ‘goodbye speech’ from our guides Regina and Lotus and we all applauded them as we shouted goodbyes. This then ended with Mr Burcher quoting Descartes (in typical Burcher fashion) and typical conversation until the arrival at the airport, typical conversation which consisted of Burcher-based banter and small-nosed abuse. The airport was supposed to look like a Dragon (with the Dragon scales on the top) and a tortoise, as a Dragon and a tortoise means ‘long life’. We then got on the plane, had a dull, boring, 10hr flight back from Beijing (which included Mr Burcher arguing with one of the air hostesses) got off the plane and had a two hour (roughly) drive back to KEGS where we were reunited with our families.
