Day 8


We are now back with better internet access!
We have had 3 memorable days in Suzhou, which included school visits. At our sister school Xinggang, we had traditional paper craft lessons, a cultural music lesson, including dance,and lunch in the dining halls with our buddies who enjoyed using their English. The school principal gave a presentation speech (in Chinese,with an English teacher translating for her).
We also went to another school and learned Kung Fu which was fun.
Also in Suzhou we enjoyed the World Heritage gardens, a cruise on the canals and a night at the Chinese Opera.
WE got up early today and skyped with Grade 6- thanks for that, it was great to talk.
Today we travelled from Suzhou to Shanghai by bus. On the way we stopped at a famous silk production company and learnt about the whole silk making process.It was very interesting.They had all sorts of beautiful silk products for sale.
Back in Shanghai we have had another Chinese feast in a lovely restaurant.
This afternoon we have been out in our small Spring Gully group on the Met visiting Yu Yuan again-lots of interesting buildings here and an old Chinese tea house, a bit more bargaining and the discovery of an amazing toy shop.
Tonight we have had a Thai feast- and tried the chicken feet (not popular!!!)
Its been a great day.
