Over the past few days, we have been flat out. We left Shanghai 2 days ago and took a bus to Suzhou. It was raining heavily on the way over. The side of the chaotic highway was littered with huge apartment skyrisers amd were all identical. When we arrived at Suzhou we went to the silk museum and learnt a lot about how silk scarves and other items are made. Afterwards, we checked into an unbelievable 5 star hotel, its amazing!
Yesterday we visited a school of 3600 students with class sizes of 50! Wow! It was really different to say the least! The girls sung both the Aussie and Chinese national anthems an instantly became celebrities, they did a magnificent job and represented Camp Hill in a spectacular fashion, afterwards, we went to Tiger Hill and checked out the Suzhhou markets, the ‘Asian Venice’ due to the vast canals. the smell of what the locals call ‘stinky tofu’ did not disappoint, it was horrendous.
Today we are off to another school and then particpating in a Kung-Fu lesson. Jorja spent the night having a sleep over Jessica’s house and we will catch up with her shortly.
