Day 5

Today we visited Tongli Water Town, an ancient village on the canals. We went on a boat and explored the canals. We walked around some beautiful gardens there that belonged to some Number 1 scholars back in a dynasty a long time ago. It is now heritage listed. We had a really yummy lunch looking over the canals. Then we had free time and did ALOT of shopping. A favourite shop was a jewellery shop that sold lots of pearls. A few of us purchased an oyster which was then cut open. Some of them had over 20 pearls in them!!!

It was a wonderful day and we are feeling excited to visit our school tomorrow. We are also going to Skype with 5/6P in the morning.

Pics to come when the internet connection is better!
