After our only day in Suzhou, we head on our long bus ride to Wuzhen, where we visit the "Times Square" of the city. It was very interesting seeing all the tall buildings and people, which all looked like New York City the last time I visited the area. After sightseeing the area, we head to Suzhou's #1 silk factory, were we are able to see how the entire process of making silk items was shown. This process was a very precious process, from breeding the special type of caterpillars, to dividing the silk to 1/7th the thickness of hair. This process was very interesting.
After the silk factory, we head to a shopping street in Hangzhou, which was 3 hours away from Suzhou. While our stay there, I witnessed rain for the second time during our stay, which was very interesting. The rain halted all the store shopping for a brief moment, but then everyone broke out their umbrellas and started walking and continued shopping.
After the shopping center, we head to a show, filled with many colors and many different people. Before the show, we enjoyed a haunted house type of event, where you walk through dark rooms, being ready to be frightened. Although I was laughing too much during the event, Mike got the best of Courtney near the end of the entrance, where he popped out and scared her. Although I wasn't the victim, I found this to be very funny and entertaining at the same time, although I felt a little bad for Courtney.
During the show, there was a good story, although I wasn't able to understand it due to the amazing choreography and dancing that was included. All I have to say it was very beautiful, elegant, and stylish. Good evening from Hangzhou, and good morning to Shanghai tomorrow!
