(ECNS)-- After travelling some 2,500 km, 40 Tibetan kids from a welfare home on the around 4,500-meter-high Qinghai-Tibet Plateau fulfilled their dreams in Beijing after a 5-day visit.
The 40 kids came from Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, northwest China's Qinghai Province. Some of them had never left their hometown or sat in an airline seat.
They stayed in Beijing for five days and took part in a series of exchange activities.
A boy named A Bin, nicknamed the "C. Ronaldo of Yushu," and five of his friends served as escorts during a football game held at the Beijing Workers' Stadium, one of the most prestigious stadiums in China.
The Palace Museum, the Great Wall, the Bird's Nest, the Water Cube (the National Aquatics Center)... the places these Tibetan kids have toured are epitomes of not only the history of ancient China, but also the pulse of modern China.
