i am posting this a while after we actually got to China and went to Suzhou, but I am horrible at keeping up my blog. I am leaving on the original date so you can see when we went to Suzhou. After the first few days of being in China the National Holiday and Mid-Autumn Festival started and my dad got time off. So we went to Suzhou for the holiday. My next few posts will be about Suzhou. The day after we got to Suzhou we went to Shantang Street, it is an old shopping street. There were a lot of little stores and booths, and some people lived on Shantang Street ( the people who owned or worked at the stores and booths and some others). There were people selling food and there were also some booths that had basically all of the same things. The booths had mostly little glass keychains (which I liked) and little fabric animals and more. Shantang Street is the most famous ancient street in Suzhou, said to be almost 1200 years old, built in the Tang Dynasty in 825AD. The founder was Bai JuYi, a famous poet of the time. This is the
