Our last day!

Our resourceful guide, Jacky, suggested a visit to a water village about one hour of the city. We were up and packed and had breakfast and checked out by 8 am.

We drove to Zhu jiao ju village, the Venice of the East. We took a boat ride along the canal, visited the village and had a local lunch, before heading off to the airport where we have a 4pm departure.

This was a wonderful opportunity to get into a village and really see how regular Chinese live in the countryside. We started in the town square with a Tai Chi lesson by Jacky.

An amazing end to an unbelievable stay in China.

It will take a while to digest and understand all that we saw and experienced.
