We started off the day with another hearty breakfast. Today is the start of the dragon boat festival so there are special treats at breakfast: tsong - sticky rice wrapped in a banana leaf.
Day 4 of the tour begins like the others. We spend the whole morning "shopping" at the Pearl Market. The only exciting thing about this is an actual demonstration of extracting the pearls -- and getting to keep one. We ended up doing magic tricks and playing card games for the rest of the time there.
We are then taken to the pottery place, where we sampled tea and watched salespeople sell their products. I rather go to pottery barn. The lady wouldn't even let me try out the teapot.
When we arrive to Hangzhou, the skies are gray and rain starts to fall. We were taken to a really nice park but then it started to pour. Unfortunately our visit was cut short and we went straight to dinner.
