Chengdu all-you-can-translate

On Sunday 22nd, we landed in the Sichuan capital of Chengdu, for the second part of our ‘Bookworm Tour’. But it’s really people who made this day special.

 We had the honour of welcoming the Australian Consul General in Chengdu, Nancy Gordon, who opened our event – and of local poet Zhifu, who observed and inquired with interest about our model.

With Zhifu

But more important, still, we were particularly happy to welcome our youngest participants to date! Two friends from a nearby international school who bravely translated two paragraphs of English into their native Chinese!

With the girls

And let’s not forget our fantastic organiser, Joanna Karmasz, events manager at the Chengdu Bookworm!
