Today the whole group spent the morning at Dong Guan Street market. Located in a historic part of Yangzhou, the market is one long street filled with handmade items, clothing and lots of delicious foods.

When we arrived at the market we were split into four teams for a scavenger hunt. I was in a group with my host Rachel as well as Catherine and her host Melody. We spent an hour traveling through the market searching for red lanterns, drums, jade dragons and much more. We even tried new foods such as squid on a stick, which tasted really good!

After we finished finding everything on the list, we spent the rest of our time shopping in the stores for souvenirs and having dumplings for lunch. I really enjoyed the entire morning and loved walking around the vibrant streets filled with new shops and foods to explore.
