ˇ@ˇ@When our teacher praised us for doing outstanding work even though we did not give any indication that we were capable of it before the project began, we felt the pride that came with being the first-time parents, and our works are the results of our hearts and souls. Each article reminds us of many great memories. One needed to be there to know firsthand what it felt like when we heard about all the stories behind the scene and when we finally finished this project.

 
     
  ˇ@ˇ@During those six months, we were busy selecting the topic, deciding on the main points, creating the structure, processing the data, going on field trips, participating in events, creating webpages, designing artworks, and translating the project into English in preparation for the international competition. They all added up to an unforgettable learning experience. We have not only gained greatly from this experience, we have also widened our vision, as well as adding a lot of knowledge that one could not otherwise obtain from the books. Our attitude toward life did a complete turn-around.  
     
  ˇ@ˇ@We have come up with a perfect term for this once-in-a-lifetime learning trip, that is ˇ§learn to learnˇ¨. We no longer scoff at motivational terms such as ˇ§learning is like rowing a boat upstream, if you don't make any progress, then you are actually going backwardˇ¨, and ˇ§live and learnˇ¨, because there is so much more for us to learn. When we ˇ§learn to learnˇ¨, we learn to do things more systematically, more efficiently, and more steadily.  
     
  ˇ@ˇ@In order to cherish this hard-to-come-by experience, we are trying to encourage each other, as well as making an effort to become the ambassador for the local community. We are making a pact to learn how to play saxophone within the next year, so that we are not only talking about it on paper, but are actually getting to know saxophones up close and personal, so that it becomes a part of our lives. We believe that a saxophone can be more than just a musical instrument; it could become a mixture of history, humanity, and environment when enough effort and time are put into packaging it.
