Reilly’s college is called Yangtze Normal University and she lives on the new campus outside of Fuling, Chongqing. It’s the school that Peace Corps’ volunteer Peter Hessler wrote about in his book River Town. It was so fun visiting her and getting to explore the campus! They have a big art building that we wandered through. I snuck into this clay class where students were making replicas of the Crouching Venus sculpture. The classroom had a few Crouching Venuses¬†on tables, work stations for maybe 30 students, and red space heaters scattered around it.
