Back from Western China

I’ve actually been back for a couple of days, but hit the ground running getting in at midnight and having to full on PD days and friends visiting from the States and then Dubai.

Kashgar was wonderful. Different people, different culture. We had to keep reminding ourselves that we were in China and had not actually left the country.

We did end up finding the carpets we were looking for. In fact…we found to many of them. Might have to put Google Ads on the blog to help pay them off. 😉

A great trip that we would recommend to anyone! Wonderful people, wonderful culture, and our guide Ali was simply delightful!

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.


  1. These pictures are phenomenal Jeff! Thanks so much for sharing them with us. Some of them are incredibly well taken and deserve a magazine cover somewhere. Seriously. It is always interesting to see how people in another corner of the world live.

    What wonderful pictures! I was amazed at the simple beauty that you captured on camera. Thank you for sharing your trip. What an amazing experience.

  3. I have never been to that part of the globe, but my travels elsewhere and your pictures remind me that people are people no matter what language they speak or where they call home. We all must interact with others; we all work; we all learn; we all play; we all enjoy color. Despite these ideas, I feel very small looking at the pictures of you all in the desert. Quite the contradiction.
