7. Hollistonian to China and Back

by The Publishers 3/2/19

The author with her travel companion, Melanie Sullivan. The streets were decorated with lights for the Chinese New Year. Note from the Publishers: A month ago a friend’s text mentioned her daughter’s trip to China. We were impressed that daughter Betsy, an elementary teacher, would be traveling to China to teach. Curiosity got the better of us, and we thought other Hollistonians might be equally curious about a neighbor’s travels to such an in-the-news locale. Betsy kindly obliged, sharing her candid and intriguing view of China which we happily submit for your reading delight. Text and Photos by Betsy Maxwell
