... Su Laoshi for teaching me bus stop! Mike relieved to find me safely with the bus but heartbroken that the ice cold Diet Coke he had managed to procure for me from the cafe I couldn't find had succumbed to the 36 degree heat. Have asked Mike not to lose me again! Government silk factor interesting but not as good as the rickshaw ride through the old streets. Mike a bit wary and feeling guilty ...
... our graduation ceremony.
It was really nice.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCrowne Plaza Hotel Suzhou
