PHOTOS AROUND SUZHOU DURING CHINESE NEW YEAR 2017:
Empty stores and almost no traffic! This area full of restaurants, bars, a bowling alley, and an international grocery store is normally a bustling area. Not at Chinese New Year though! There are so many restaurants to choose from, but we could not find one open place! We threw in the towel and decided to eat at the grocery store cafe (sort of like the Sam’s or Costco cafes in the USA), but the grocery store was closed, too. We normally eat out a lot and had to scrounge up some spaghetti in our kitchen–so sad!
