I want to briefly introduce Doug. Doug hails from the American heartland, from Iowa. He speaks pretty good Mandarin, though for us he’ll be writing in English. For the next ten days, Doug will be volunteering at one of Beijing’s schools for migrant children. Doug is going to tell us about his experience teaching there and his life in China. All the readers of our blog will have a chance to taste what it’s like to participate in one of Lotus’ volunteer programs. I’m looking forward to it!
