Last week we had some more trips with Suzie. We took her to see the Shanghai Propaganda poster art museum & she purchased a soopa doopa souvenir pictures of a military ballet. We then watched the film “Mao’s Last Dancer” so she knew more about her picture. She cried. So did Dad. We also went to see Jing’An temple, which is by Mum’s office. I made Suzie bed tea & an omelet for breakfast. I think she was quite impressed.
Mum & I had to go back to school/work this week. So Suzie & Dad went to Hangzhou to see lots of people having their wedding photos taken, tea, temples & Impressions of the West Lake [so Dad has been singing Jane Zhang ALL week]. We tried a new local tapas restaurant with Suzie & Liz – which was quite good but the cocktails are not recommended & we also took Suzie to Garlic (as it’s my favourite restaurant) for our last supper. Suzie went home with a new wardrobe of clothes, so look out for the new look.
Thank you very much to everyone who took part in our quiz. I think that last week’s quiz was a bit difficult, but the top score was 7 out of 10, so if you still thinking of doing the quiz don’t open the answers, which are in the document below:
Suzie went back home on Friday, so we are of course very sad. We are however, missing a few small items from the house, so if anyone is going to see her please let us know & we will send a description of the missing items.
This weekend Summer has arrived. Yesterday we went to see a 007 exhibition to celebrate 50 years of James Bond, which was very exciting. Today I went for a swim & did homework.
This week in pictures:
