LFA Summer Celebration Trip in China 2018
LFA faculty will be traveling around China for the next week and will visit the cities of Shanghai, Beijing, and Taiyuan! Read about their trip below.
This morning we all woke up at various times. Some of us were able to walk around and explore the city of Shanghai as the sun was beginning to rise. All of us ate breakfast at the hotel. It was a wonderful spread including, but certainly not limited to, poached eggs, sushi, smoked salmon, pastries, fresh fruit, and so much more!
We all got on a bus that took us to the Yu Garden. It was a beautiful garden with koi ponds, unique architecture, winding paths and beautiful greenery. Afterwards, we had some time to shop around in the area. Some of the items purchased were jade rollers, post cards, and paper cutting artwork.
For lunch, we enjoyed another family style meal with one delicious plate after another making its way to the lazy susan. One of the most memorable dishes was the soup dumplings! After lunch, we walked back to the bus which took us to The Bund. While we were able to view the city during the day, we were also able to come back after dinner to see the skyline all lit up at night.
The Wang family has been so generous throughout our stay thus far. We have all really enjoyed touring their hometown and are looking forward to visiting Hangzhou tomorrow!
