Photos from China
On the second day of the tour, Joan, Lynette and I decided to check out Zhujiajia, a town just 10 minutes from the Campus. We were fascinated by the waterways that divided the town, with access from one side to the other being across unique stone bridges. From the centre of the main bridge we had a view of both sides.
Our first major expedition was to Nanjing. The bus took us to Shanghai Station where we boarded the Bullet Train to Nanjing. The train was fast, quiet, and extremely comfortable. Attendants provided snacks and bottles of juice along the way, and we were able to sit back and relax, taking in the unique scenery that we sped past on the journey south.

After a great dinner at Lost Heaven Restaurant, we were treated to a spectacular view of the city on our first night in Shanghai.
The trip included a mind-blowing show on a very wet night in Shanghai, featuring acrobatic acts. The level of fitness and precision involved in the acts was unbelievable. The highlight was eight motorbikes zipping around the inside of a cylindrical wire frame, at great speed, in synchronised precision. The worst part was I couldn’t take any photos, so you’ll just have to believe how impressive it was. If I hadn’t seen it myself, I’d say it was impossible.
The dinner before the show was just as special; a Hot Pot at a restaurant in the shopping centre next to the hotel.
The following photo is from a model of the campus. To say it is huge certainly wouldn’t do it justice. I have so many photos and stories to share it will take me a while to catch up, but I’ll certainly try
