The second day we had a more traditional touristy day in Suzhou, first we had lunch at Grandma's where we continued the tradition of ordering far too much good food. We then walked to Shangtang Jie, which is another traditional road, a bit like Pingjiang Lu but for some reason a lot more touristy - even though Pingjiang is right in the centre of town, something I don't think I'll ever understand!

Dad and I woke up early Sunday to have breakfast then head to mass. Maggie Song picked us up to take us to church. The drive was one of the more scary drives we've had.

After exiting the park, I saw the elusive Bund in the distance. This confirmed that we had indeed went the wrong way initially, and kept walking towards ...
