In our 8th meeting, after over a month of no meetings due to COVID-19 challenges, we conversed about current events and everything that had happened over the past few weeks from activities we did at home to stay sane to what the governments allowed the citizens to do. Lanzhou had started opening back up while New Mexico was still in the midst of stay-at-home orders with no schools, restaurants, or shops open. We also talked about which Lanzhou student would be finishing which Albuquerque piece.
