This post is from Prof. Detlev Suderow ’70 (International Business School), who just returned from co-leading the 2009 Alumni Travel Program to China.
The 2009 Brandeis Alumni Association Alumni Travel program trip was a tremendous success with 27 Brandeis community participants, including 16 Brandeis alumni, who sojourned in China from June 10 – 23 led by Odyssey Tours and Brandeis co-leaders Prof. Detlev Suderow ’70 (IBS) and Brandeis University Trustee Paul Zlotoff ’72. The group traveled from Beijing to Xi’an to Chungjing — down the Yangtze River through the Three Gorges to Yicheng, then on to Shanghai. This photo was taken at the Tang Dynasty performance in Xi’an, (the last stop on the ancient Silk Road) and home of the remarkable Terracotta Warriors.
The trip was a success in every possible way — it gave alumni a chance to connect in a fascinating place, it provided a comprehensive introduction to a 5,000 year old culture, and it left participants hungering for more Alumni Trips to exotic locales.
