We left our luxurious hotel this morning and headed to Tongli, an ancient town. Here we saw a traditional house and the White Hills kids all bought a giant oyster to get the pearls inside. Cody’s pearls were huge and he had them made into a bracelet. The oysters cost 50 yuan each($10) and it cost him another 50 to have it made into the bracelet. We went on a gondola ride and viewed working cormorants catching fish, fascinating stuff. We purchased a few more ‘bargains’ in the shops in Tongali before heading back to Shanghai where we will see the ERA Circus
We then enjoyed a yummy lunch again!
