Student tours world
Allison Lawrence, daughter of Donna and Brad Lawrence of Woodinville, recently attended Semester At Sea.
She is a junior majoring in education at Western Washington University in Bellingham.
There were approximately 640 students on board the ship which left Vancouver, British Columbia, on Aug. 31 bound for Kobe, Japan. From there the students visited Hong Kong, Beijing, China, Vietnam, Singapore, India, Kenya, South Africa, Brazil, and finally Cuba before returning to Miami.
While on the high seas the students are in regular collage classes. Much of their extended learning is interacting with the different countries, their cultures, traditions and people.
