We arrived in Suzhou after a 2 hour bus trip from Shanghai. After our arrival we went for an early dinner – beautiful sizzle beef, sauteed cabbage, sweet and sour pork and other delightful dishes. Our hotel is amazing in Suzhou. Everyone went to be early as we have had a very busy few days.
On the bus at 9am. We spent the day at Tongli Water Town. So interesting! An old town on the canal. We went on a boat tour of the canal and went passed all the old homes and shops. Had a yummy traditional lunch where local produce was used. Tried fresh lychees and they were delicious. Tamika bought a hand made stone necklace. Will bought a hat and cool sunglasses. Ava bought a beautiful umbrella and Maddy bought a beautiful scarf. Mrs Gloury opened a pearly shell and had enough pearls to make 4 poairs of earrings and a bracelet!
early evening meal tonight and back to the hotel. School Visits start tomorrow.
