Erziyan Village, Yuanjiaxi, Sichuan Province, China

We completed our first elementary school in Erziyan Village. Erziyan is located about seven hours by car south of the Sichuan Province’s capital city Chengdu. After the last 1 1/2 hour ride up the steep tea terrace mountains, we walked for 3 hours through boot sucking mud. The local village leader and teacher told us that the 3 hour walk takes them 30 minutes.
