Adrian’s flat stanley

  1. 1. Adrian’s Flat Stanley Adventure in Chico, CA
  2. 2. Hi, I am Adrian’s Flat Stanley. I am dressing like a character from Star Wars. I am going to share my adventure with you.
  3. 3. I went to Chico, California in September. Chico is 210 miles north of Cupertino. It takes about 3.5 hours to get there by car.
  4. 4. Chico is in Butte County. It is a small city with about 90,000 people. But it has a big city park – Bidwell Park, which takes up 17% of the city!
  5. 5. Bidwell Park has over 3,600 acres and is the 24th largest city park in the country.
  6. 6. This is the Wong family. They live in Chico. They are Adrian’s family friends. Wai-hung Mason Louise
  7. 7. This is the Chico State University. Wai-hung is a professor at the University. He took me to work so that I could sit in his class.
  8. 8. This is Marie, the secretary of the Philosophy Department. I think I may want to be a professor when I grow up.
  9. 9. Butte College is a community college for Butte County. It has a satellite campus in Chico.
  10. 10. Louise is a reference librarian at Butte College. She took me to the college library where she works. Wow, the library is ready for Halloween! It looked a little scary. I took a deep breath and went in.
  11. 11. This is Amanda. She is a student assistant working at the library. She showed me the reserve books for different classes. In college, students have to buy their own textbooks. Some of them can’t afford to buy the books, but they can use the books at the library.
  12. 12. I never thought that I would find a coffin in the library! It’s so cool that I decided to sneak into the coffin to say hello to the skeleton there!
  13. 13. This is the Enloe Medical Center – the only hospital in Chico. Mason is a volunteer there. Every Friday after school, he runs errands for the doctors and helps patients with their needs.
  14. 14. I met with other volunteers. Like Mason, they are high school students. They are cheerful and fun.
  15. 15. There are not many Chinese in Chico, so there are no Chinese grocery stores here. Chinese in Chico will go to Sacramento or the Bay Area to buy Chinese groceries. The Wongs’ friends just returned from San Francisco and brought them Chinese roasted duck and Chinese vegetables.
  16. 16. This is the Farmers’ Market. It opens every Saturday morning. Locals like to buy fresh vegetables and organic food here directly from the farmers.
  17. 17. I had fun choosing squashes and peppers!
  18. 18. This is a local farmer. He has a ranch and he raises organic chicken. Louise likes to buy organic chicken wings from him. 
  19. 19. I learned about this organic farm. I wish I could go there to look at the chicken!
  20. 20. Louise bought some almonds, honey sticks, purple peppers, and organic chicken wings at the Farmers’ Market.
  21. 21. The Wongs took me to visit their best friend on a weekend. Guess where we went? Cupertino!! We visited Adrian over the weekend!
