NEWPORT-Walking along The Great Wall of China was "almost a surreal experience" for Arin Chambers, a rising senior at Nashville's Harpeth Hall.
Chambers, 17, spent June 1-15 in Beijing, China's Dulwich College, an International Baccalaureate school where she attended classes with students from around the globe.
Joining Arin for the experience was Olivia Snell, a rising junior at Harpeth Hall.
While in China, Arin and Olivia lived with host families whose daughters will come to the United States in October for a similar experience.
"Visiting China this way was not like a tourist event," said Arin last Sunday, when interviewed at the home of her grandparents Bill and Beverly Chambers and great-grandmother Dolly Harville of Newport.
