Day 4

Today we went shopping at the market underneath the Science and Technology Museum. We bargained for lots of great things there including chopsticks, scarves, Chinese knots, bags, fishing lures, phone accessories etc. It took a little while to get used to having to bargain for our shopping but the girls got the hang of it and were very tough customers by the end!
We then went for walk down to the mall in the middle of Shanghai city. Charli started a huge crowd dance session by joining in with one lady who was dancing to some music. All of a sudden all the other kids joined in and lots of Chinese people did too. The kids even taught them how to do the ‘floss’ dance move!
The mall was incredibly busy but so great! We went to a Chinese food market where they sold lots of dried fruits, meat, sweet treats and even individually wrapped pieces of seafood (preserved in plastic- not refrigerated!)
On the way back to the hotel some of us got a bubble waffle ice cream cone! Delicious!!!!
We then made our way to Suzhou by bus. We ate a beautiful Chinese dinner at a restaurant (lots of dumplings and duck pancakes). We checked into our very luxurious hotel and we are excited to call it home for the next 4 nights.
Missing everyone back home! Hello to the kids and teachers at Speci if they are reading this at assembly!!

  12. Hello, Charli, Lara, Lindsay Zinnia and Mrs K,
    Your day in Shanghai City and Suzhou sounded so busy and amazing. It is so great to share these experiences you are having. The food looks so yummy. Do they have much healthy and fresh food to eat? I would’ve really liked to have seen a video of Charli teaching a crowd of dancers to “floss”.
    Have you visited any schools yet? I am sure they are quite different to ours.
    Keep having a great time,
    Ms B
