... Next stop at the Master of the Nets Garden which is one of the most famous gardens in Suzhou, containing a series of halls, courtyards and gardens.
Lunch was as a muslim Chinese restaurant. Round table, lazy susan and lots of delicious food.
The afternoon turned very misty, cold and rainy for our three hour drive to Hangzhou.
We went back to Casa Zoe's for breakfast after moving from the Kempinski Hotel back to the Gran Park Hotel for work tomorrow. We then went to visit the Nanshan Temple, and walked around a market area, a bit like Confucius Temple area in Nanjing with small shops and stalls.
We then took a lovely boat trip down the Grand Canal (which we have been on in Hangzhou also), stopping off at a hand-made brick museum. Another lovely day.
... far more attractions than we imagined.
We came out and the taxi drivers started haggling over prices, but then I saw the No 88 bus which I knew went back to town so we hopped on that. We went to the Blue Frog for supper and saw Maumo and Hebe, the lovely manager, and then some of the teachers from Wuxi No 1 came in: Clive, Dennis and Arun so we had a few drinks and chatted to them. A really lovely day.
... restaurant was closed?! So we kept on walking down stopping at the cute shops that were along the way. Despite being hungry and all the people it was a really nice atmosphere, I bought a really cool photo display book, a notebook and of course postcards from a nice bookshop. We did end up finding somewhere to eat but it was in no way as good as that other restaurant would have been hahaAfter eating we resumed our walk along canals, there were people getting special boat rides ...
... because is noticed the "workers" in the mill, pack up once we left.....all for our show. It was interesting nonetheless. I tried on a couple of silk jackets (Chinese style). Started with the 2xl......wore like a three quarter length tshirt. The lovely young lady found a 6xl in another style, still the arms were short, so I gave up. LUNCH! We eat again. I am loving it. After lunch back on the bus for a tour of the 900 year old gardens. ...
