Today we met David, he was one of the project designer. He helped with the greenway system, a system that will help make the streets safer. He also talked about the water collection. It looks like a drain, but it is near trees and bushes. But people tend to kick dirt and small rocks into these drains, so it is not functioning as efficient. They are planning to remove the things that clog up the drains, as soon as possible.
Then we rushed to a tour given by "Tour Guys". Even though we tried to get there as quick as possible, we were still late. When we caught up to tour, I was surprised. There were at least 30 people in the tour. In the tour we talked about the Shanghai Alleyway, an alleyway where many of the Chinese were living. When the American started losing their jobs, they blamed the Chinese. One day, they decided to attacked this alleyway. This fight was very uncalled for, so the Chinese lost. But, this was not enough for the American. They started to head toward the Japanese for another attack. This time the Japanese were informed, so they were armed with rocks and sticks. But, this is still no match for guns. Then they talked about the buildings in Chinatown and how they avoided the hight tax. In order for the government to tax a building each floor have to be 7 feet or higher. So many of them built their floors 6 feet high. At the end of the the tour, they told us that their favorite place to end their tour is Sun Yat Sen Garden. It is a very nice garden!
After our tour we went to a cafe, there we met Doris. She told us about why they wanted to start a youth program and how they are going to start.They told us that they are going to play mahjong with the seniors. To start getting people to notice their program. After they told us what they want to do, we shared our tips with them. Then, the day ended just like that.
