Venice of the East

Yesterday, our last full day in China, our group took a day trip to another city called Suzhou. Suzhou has many canals running through it, and because of this it is also called the Venice of the East. In Suzhou, we rode boats on the canals, visited a silk factory, and strolled through a famous garden in Suzhou. We also met up with some UNA students there. I wasn’t aware that we have business students in China until this trip, but it was great to be able to meet them all. We headed back to Shanghai in the afternoon, got some dinner, and some of us went back to the city to enjoy the Shanghai night skyline one last time. Now, we’re about to go to the mall and do some last minute shopping, then head to the airport. I have had an amazing experience in China and I’m going to miss it.20140601-005645-3405055.jpg
