Talladega High School students Byron Tucker, 14, and Kelvin Cunningham Jr., 14, are getting back into the swing of things in America.
The teens have just come back from a 17-day trip to China, where they visited Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai, Wuzhen and Hong Kong, as part of a People to People Ambassador program.
After packing their bags in late May, and brushing up on their Mandarin Chinese, the teens joined other students for a “Great Wall and Beyond” trip for students in grades nine through 12.
The group visited The Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China, while also doing community service and immersing themselves in the daily lives of those living in smaller villages in China.
