I spent my day off Seeing Sights in Suzhou. #expat #China

In my efforts to shake things up a bit, I used a day off to do some walking around. I’d learned about a mosque in Suzhou before I moved here. My newfound expertise with subways prompted me to head out and check it out. I knew our school had a center in…
