SECOND PLACE: Clementine Guelton is a junior majoring in International Studies and East Asian Studies. She spent the Fall of 2015 studying in Shanghai, China with CIEE. While abroad, Clementine and her friends had the opportunity to travel to Southern China as well as South Korea. Her photo was taken in the famous Guilin mountains in Southern China. In fact, these mountains are so acclaimed that they are even represented on the Chinese 20 yuan bill! While traveling along the Li River in rafts, Clementine met a local fisherman who demonstrated traditional fishing techniques used in the area for centuries. She was able to capture this time-honored tradition at just the right moment, showcasing part of Guilin’s beauty and culture!
THIRD PLACE: Rachel Kassler, a junior studying International Studies and Spanish, was a participant in the CIEE Santiago, Chile program this past fall. After her program ended, Rachel went backpacking for a month to explore the mountainous and beautifully pristine region of Patagonia. The picture depicted was taken during her 10-day hike on the Torres del Paine circuit on the Chilean side of Patagonia at the campsite Refugio Dickson, which was located near a glacial lake. She considers it her lugar favorito or favorite place. As Rachel put it, just call her natgeo!
