Brittany Russell and the troupe take a side trip to the northern city of Harbin, temperature about 20 below 0 F. The weather affords the locals to perform magic with ice sculptures. Other than the electric lights, this little city is designed entirely of ice.

The Far Eastern Journey: Beijing, China

Sponsors Shirley Pickton and Darren Carollo along with eight Lincoln students journeyed to Beijing, China for a ten day excursion where the world became the classroom. The students were English language facilitators in a Chinese high school where the concept of multi-culturalism became a reality. Lincoln students returned with a new view on what real life outside of Dallas is all about. We though the old maxim, 'A picture is worth a thousand words,' was fitting to share their life-altering experience.
