Today was Sunday. We were hoping they would give us the day off, and we were fortunate that they did. I had made plans with one of the gals in the marketing department to go visit a nearby "mountain" with her boyfriend. It looked like a fun place to explore, and I needed to take a break from working two jobs. I still have quite a bit of work to do to finish a project for a client in Ames, but I decided to take a break and build some relationships at the same time. It was a wonderful day.
Main walkway up the “mountain”. This is Miss Dong and her boyfriend Mr. Su. Dong works in the marketing department at Schumacher Elevator and Su is a mechanical engineer at a nearby Toyota plant. A street vendor is selling fruit and drinks.
Hiking up to a scenic overlook.
View of Jingjang Town, a small village within Zhangjiagang City.
Costume shop in the park. You can dress up and get your picture taken. I can help but notice the hat the lady is is wearing.
Her kid was happy to pose for a picture. I guess we were 20 years ahead of our time, Kathy. I wonder if she makes them and sells them. I couldn’t speak her language, so I didn’t ask!
Fishing for goldfish at a pond halfway to the top. We had to go back because Dong got called in to work! That kept this blog to only seven photos. Lucky you!
