March 11: The Great Silk Market

Shopping, shopping, and more shopping! The famous Silk Market is a lot of fun. As several of the guys said, “Your adrenaline gets pumping”. It is fun to go into the market and bargain with the Chinese people. They are very good at what they do and they are very good actors. But beware lest they fool you. Most of us paid too much, relatively speaking, on our first purchases. Going in the second day definitely gives you an advantage, especially when you have a big group. You can know what the good deals are on the products. By giving it time and knowing the price you want, you can get them down to what you want to pay. We all came out with a variety of goods. The experience for all was exciting, tiring, and a whole lot of fun. To further the excitement, we have a variety of gifts and goods for ourselves, friends, and family at extremely low prices. Who couldn’t be happy with those results?
