China Day Four
April 10, 2012

We woke up and had an amazing breakfast. Then I headed to the gym to get a workout in. The shower was great; it was like a waterfall. The water came down from the ceiling. Today was a free day. We have a new guide for this city and her name is Snow. We went to Da Ming Lake and Park. It’s in the middle of the city. It reminds me of Central Park. It was beautiful at the lake. There were a lot of willow trees; they are called the city tree.

We headed for lunch to a Chinese restaurant. Snow took us to a great place!!! I was so happy. It was nice to eat a good meal. I like Snow a lot. After lunch we went shopping again. Shopping was great!!! I bought two purses. One for Kelly, and one for me. I also bought a wallet. I loved bargaining. Eventually it was time go and we meet up with Dennis and planned for tomorrow. We practiced for awhile after that. Then we had dinner at the hotel. I was able to get sushi. It's been great being able to eat every meal today. Then it was time for bed. Today was a great day!!

China Day Five
April 11, 2012

Today we started with breakfast and headed to our appearance. It was at a dealership. We preformed and received another present. It was a beautiful fan. It is my favorite gift. They are so nice for getting us all gifts. We went to lunch at the same place as yesterday because we really liked it. We had to stop by at the auto-show; so that they could take our pictures and we could check out the stage.

Then we headed to Bauto Spring Park. It was very pretty and the spring was big. The water was so clear. Locals come there to get drinking water from the spring. After, we stopped by the convention center to check it out. It is much bigger! Then we headed back to the hotel. We saw an underground supermarket. They call it a hyper market. It was just like Wal-mart. We got candy and snacks to try. It was great, I was able to get Dove chocolate and other American candy. Then for dinner we had Pizza Hut. I was feeling bad early but after candy and pizza I was much better. After dinner we practiced and worked out. Then it was time for bed.

China Day Six
April 12, 2012

Today we had breakfast and headed to the convention center for our first performance. That performance was for the "boss". We did well. Before the second performance we got lunch and practiced. Lunch was ok. I had egg drop soup; it was different. It had a very bland taste. Then we headed back to the convention center to get ready for our next performance. After we preformed we headed to the west market for more shopping. I was able to get gifts for my family and friends. We were tired and hungry so we headed back to the hotel. We had dinner at McDonalds. I was glad to get a McFlurry. Then we had practice and we worked out. It was a good day for everyone.
