    I really can't remember the name of the Chinese fine-dining restaurant, but it was quite popular for business travellers. Aside from the main dining area, there are small dining rooms for those who want privacy, like our group.

    Chinese lauriat of exotic dishes made from anything wild - wild grass, wild duck, wild cat, and snake - is their specialty. Snake blood is also available. Can you imagine drinking it? But, we were told that it has medicinal value.

    Favorite Dish: It was a very sumptous dinner and I even tried the Chinese wine. What I enjoyed a lot was the Dragon Fruit. It was my first encounter with the fruit and immediately, it reminds me of a Dalmatian. Well, the fruit's meat is white with very small black seeds.

    Changzhou is approximately 200 kilometers from Shanghai. The trip took 2 hours on our rented van. Thanks to the very good road network and its condition (I really envy the Chinese highway system), and partly to the way Chinese drivers drive - reaalllyyy FAST!

    We tried the public, unairconditioned bus going back to Shanghai. It has a schedule and they don't pick up passengers along the way, although less comfortable.

Changzhou Off The Beaten Path

    Went to one of the biggest manufacturing plants of tractors in China. The firm exports their tractors to other Asian countries. There, you will be witnessed on how small parts are pieced together until the final product is formed. And mind you, everything is done manually (the reason? probably to give job opportunities to more people).

    The plant is really big, generally clean, and in order, although ventilation seemed insufficient. But, the workers looked unmindful of their work condition (maybe, they are well used to it) and had full concentration on what they were doing.

    We visited a rice and corn field where a farmer-technician gave a lecture on the appropriate size of tractor be used on different types of soil. He also demonstrated how to operate small and hand tractors.

    One of the girls in our group volunteered to try operating the hand tractor. And much to everybody's surprise, she did it like a pro!
