The Longest Bridge in the World (Photos)

These are photos I took from the bus while we were crossing the longest bridge in the world, across a portion of the Yellow Sea.  Needless to say, it's a REALLY long bridge, and the photos do not do it justice.  The last shot shows some of the far side of Qingdao, which is a considerable distance from where I live and where the school is (Qingdao is quite big).

I wish I could post photos from Fall Camp, but for two reasons, I cannot:
1)  I was far too busy with the girls to even think about taking photos!
2)  Had I taken any, I still wouldn't be able to post them.  There are just too many sick, depraved people in this world for me to even THINK of sharing photos of our very beautiful teenage girls (particularly with most of them being Asian).  I prefer to keep my girls safe in this very disgusting age, so my blog readers will never get to see any of my students.  I wish the world were otherwise.

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
