Day 7

Today we visited our Sister School again. We attended Art and PE class and then a smal part of a computer coding class. We also handed out our gifts and the students were so excited.

After that we visited the Silk Museum. We learned about how silk is made from the cocoon of a silk worm. We saw the machines in work extracting the silk from the cocoon. Some of us purchased some beautiful silk gifts.

We then visisted Tiger Hill. We walked up the hill and then looked down on the Sword Pond where a secret entrance was found to a tomb. We also saw a huge leaning pagoda.

Then we visited Shangtang Old Street for a small bit of shopping. It was very busy but there were a lot of great things to buy.

Zinnia spent the afternoon and night with Rachel again. They went ice skating and enjoyed a lovey meal together.

  8. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALL THE WAY FROM AUUUSSSSTTRRRAAALLLIIIIAAAAAAAAAA MRS. K!!!!!!! WOOOOOO!!! The kids are excited about your birthday they can barely contain themselves and are constantly asking about you. They were quick to believe me when I told them you were 35, which is a little concerning. Kaiden is wondering how the silk worms felt to touch? Were they slimy or rough or sticky or hard etc? More importantly, how much silk are you bringing back for us to sell and become millionaires with? 😉 Bye for now.

    To Zinnia, Lindsay, Lara and Charli – well done you are all amazing ambassadors for your School and your community … you have no idea how many family members and friends are awaiting your return and to hear first hand about your trip.

    To Mrs K thank you for the blog posts and photos – we have enjoyed reading them as they have come through.
