Our Amazing Time - Harriet and Jake

Hi. Jake and Harrie here and we are going to talk about our amazing time yesterday.

A Lesson on Chinese Calligraphy

Firstly we had a go at Chinese calligraphy. We painted a picture of elegant bamboo sticks. Some pictures were better than others. Ha Ha! Next, we learned some Mandarin for our upcoming bargaining bonanza. We learned to say things like: 'too expensive' and 'how much'? We all found this very useful later on. Finally, we bartered (quite badly) for items on a shopping list. Fun, exhausting and hilariously different!

Overall, yesterday was a really fun and exciting day. It gave us all a taste of something completely new that wasn't home.
