Shanghai again

today we had to wake up really early, and get ready to go back to Shanghai. I really like Shanghai better than suzho, because suzho doesn’t really have good views of thing, and everything is broken. So I’m really excited to go back to Shanghai.  We go on a bus with our tour guide which will take about 1-2 hours. I also like our tour guide because she is nice and she is funny. She would talk into a microphone at the front of the bus and give us a lot of facts about our destination. We are going back to the park hotel which is way better than the days hotel.p, because park hotel has better wifi to connect with friends and family, and Days hotel doesn’t.

Day 7: our sister school 2

Today we went back to our sister school (weiting experimental school.) today we did P.E, paper cutting and had lunch. For P.E we did Kung fu and played a couple of games. I liked Kung fu, a lot more than tai chi. My favourite game was when we would run around in a circle and then the teacher would call out a number, than we would get into groups of that number the teacher called out. In paper cutting we all got a design to cut out, and they turned out AWESOME! We made a Christmas tree, a pumpkin lantern, a snowflake and than we got to design our own. For lunch we had rice, pork, curry, yoghurt and some other food that I can’t remember. My favourite was the pork. It was sad that it was our last day there. But we got heaps more presents, and heaps of photos with the kids. We had a lot of fun and would love to come back.

Day 5: Suzhou

Today we are moving to a new hotel, in SUZHOU!!! It will probably take an hour and a half to get there, by bus. I am really looking forward to go to SUZHOU, because it is way different than Shanghai. In SUZHOU we are going to our sister school, to see all the kids. We are going to have tea with Yoyo and Ella.We will have lots of FUN!!!!

Sorry I don’t have a pic yet.

Day 4: lunch

image Today we went to a Chinese resturant and had lunch. It was delicious!!there was: Bbq pork, salad, beef noodles, chicken knuckles, cola, fried rice, and pork buns. To be honest my favourite food was probably the chicken knuckles, but they had real big bones………..Lol. After that I was full. Like I was going to explode. We ate most of the things on the table and drank our drinks. That was the best meal I’ve had so far on this trip.

 

My pantoum poem

Our task was to write a Pantoum Poem about what we liked, and I chose to write about China:

CHINA!!!!!

Hi, my name is Acacia, and I got chosen to go to China for 2016. I am really excited to go to China this year because I think that it will be a great experience for me and that I will learn a different culture I think that learning different cultures is interesting because it’s like way different to our culture.  In China I would love to try a fish eye, because your never going to know what it tastes like until you try it
