One of the annual events for new and returning teachers and staff of HFI is the cruise on the Pearl River.
The evening event began at the Canton Tower Pier, where everyone met to board the ship. For the next 90 minutes, passengers were treated to the majesty of the city, from the White Goose Pool all the way down to the Guangzhou Bridge. As the sun set, the brilliant lights of the bridges and buildings created a beautiful scene from the observation deck of the three-story boat. In every direction, colleagues marvelled at the Canton Tower, the coordinated video projections, and the clear moon-lit sky. Chatting with friends old and new, posing for pictures, and sharing the ever-changing scenery made the event both meaningful and memorable.
When this event comes around next fall, mark your calendar and plan to participate. It is a wonderful opportunity for one and all.
