Suzhou Oct 2006
A trip to Suzhou just to have a bit of fun. We came from around China for a weekend of play, food, and drink!
Typical foreigner image. Willie, Hanhan, David, and Ruth. Gogo too.
Our day at Suzhouland ends, this is a good motto for the place.
Hanhan and Happy at the Outdoor Bar (We call it the 'Dog Bar').
