Well we are now seated at the famous ERA circus. It will be s late night folks so we are not likely to touch base tonight but will certainly make contact tomorrow morning. This is our last evening in Shanghai, China. We fly out tomorrow evening. We must turn off cameras now but here are your cherubs in their seats eagerly awaiting the start of the show.
Tongli is situated in the old section of Suzhou. It is connected by a series of canals. Those that live and work in this old water town use the canal to live – wash their clothes in it, throw old water into the canal, wash dishes etc. this is the Venice of China.
The kids loved this section today and the canal ride was great.
These gardens are a sight to behold. Stunning- although the kids were probably tired by this stage . As Megan said ” I’m tired, hot and bothered!” So maybe the ancient gardens may have been lost on the kids but if ever visiting Suzhou then it is definitely a must do.
Well ….. grasshopper…. this is Mr Myagi here! Well not quite but we sure have it a go as we learnt some of the skills and drills of Kung Fu from one of the Top Chinese Masters – he has been learning his craft since 6 years old.
This afternoon Oakley, Chelsea, Megan and Harrison were all collected by their host families to spend the evening or overnight with them. This has truly been a success.
We are about to head to Fangzhou PS. Lucy will pick us up in a few minutes. Our bags are filled with gifts and our hearts are full of anticipation.
