day 7: shopping day

I was glad we got to go see the lake yesterday as the weather forecast, which is much more accurate than the one for seattle, predicted 3 days of rain. So Sun decided to take us shopping. We first stopped at a mall where they carry very luxurious items like LV and Coach bags. We walked around and pretended we wanted to buy stuff haha. Aftet that, We went to the famous HangZhou silk market to look at cheap scarfs. Now I am horrible at bargaining because I don't know enough about the base price even though now I have learned how to say the right things to haggle. Sun, on the other hand, is an expert. Our greatest accomplishment was to buy a scarf for M. original asking price 215 yuan. final sell price: 35 yuan. @_@
