We decided we would go today to Suzhou so that we can buy our tickets to Hong kong while at the train station. So in the morning we woke up from our hotel in Shanghai and then went to look for some breakfast. We walked around some side streets a bit and finally ended up eating a few fried dumplings, a rolled up egg, meat, bread type of thing and a green icee. Then we went back to our hotel to get our stuff and checked out. We took the subway to the train station.
Buying our train tickets to Hong Kong turned out to be a bit tricky. First I waited in one line for a long time but the lady at the desk said I had to go to a different line but I didn't know which one.
We also bought our train tickets to go to Suzhou right then. The train to Suzhou would leave in a 1.5 hours so we went to get some lunch and Steve used his point at a random thing in the menu method to order. We ended up with some weird thing ( we think it was meat) and i ordered some tomatoe and egg. Then we got on the train to Suzhou which took about 1 hour.
We arrived in Suzhou in the late afternoon, and took a taxi to Suzhou University. I figured we would stay in the same hotel we stayed in 2 years ago. It is right in the middle of campus. We checked in to our hotel which cost 180 Yuan (around $22). Then we went to walk around. We went down some streets with lots of shops and restaurants and eventually got to the main shopping area in Suzhou.
Also, Steve's been getting a little cold. He had a sore throat a bit and has been coughing a lot. I made him take some ColdEase that I brought so hopefully it will go away soon.
