SOMETHING HAPPENED ONE DAY ON A LONG FLIGHT-TRIP IN A METAL CRAFT AS IT TRAVERSED OVER THE INTERNATIONAL TIME LINE AT A SPEED APPROACHING THE SOUND BARRIER. THE FIRST NOTICABLE THING WAS THAT THE COLORS OF THE CLOTHES THE PASSENGERS WORE WERE MUCH BRIGHTER, AND HAD MORE COLOR, AND THE CRAFT WAS MUCH QUIETER. LIKE AN EXCITING DREAM COME TRUE, LATER, IN A LAND CRAFT WHEN THE, NOW ALIENS, CROSSED UNDER A GREAT, HUGE WALL, THEY WERE IN ANOTHER WORLD. THE CIVILIZATION THESE ALIENS, RAN INTO HAD TOTALLY BEEN UNTOUCHED BY ANY OTHER CIVILIZATION ON EARTH. THE STRANGE STREETS AND BUILDINGS WERE DENSLY POPULATED. THE BEINGS IN THIS STRANGE WORLD WOULD TOUCH THEIR SKIN TO SEE IF IT WAS REAL, THEY HAD A STRANGE WAY OF COMMUNICATING WORDS FROM THEIR MOUTHS, BUT A FEW KNEW THE LANGUAGE AND WOULD ASK "WHERE DID YOU COME FROM?," NOT "WHERE ARE YOU FROM?" Has taught school in inner-city with mixed nationalities; in an African-American school; in a rural one ethnic school; in a Bureau of Indian Affairs, American-Indian school, and an all Chinese school. Has taught in middle-school, elementary school, and special education. Has worked with children and the youth in YMCAs, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and has assisted people groups in Burkina-Faso, the Gypsies in Romania, the Hispanics in America, and the Chinese in China. Is currently working with the Hans and Mongolians in northeast China.

While searching for a bilingual work in English and Mongolian for my granddaughter, I found an intriguing fiction story about the culture of the Hans and Mongolians and their strange way of communicating as written by E.Nelson Kelley who currently is working with them in Northeast China.
Fascinating story!
