Day 4

Yesterday we went to the Science and Tech market for a couple of hours to do some shopping. The girls bartering skills have really come a long way and are now professional hagglers! Afterwards, we went to the Planning Museum, which was incredible. We learnt a lot about the layout and infrastructure of Shanghai. Next up was the Jingan Temple, it was huge and magnificent. The girls enjoyed checking out the different buddas and loved throwing money into a huge tower. We are also quickly learning the road rules of China, or major lack there of, the driving has kept all of us on our toes. Last night we went out for tea at a restaurant that Chen organised, it was spectacular. Today we are off to Suzhou with everyone else as our sister school cancelled. Once we get there, we are going to Shantang Old Street, which is part of the ancient city of Suhzou. It has canals and is full of great sight seeing.
