Day 6 Authors: Courtney Bristow, Cristian Di Iulio, Xinying Xie Our first daytrip outside Shanghai began with an early rise to catch a bus to Suzhou. We drove through the criss-crossing freeways, away from the towering high-rises, to the picturesque town of Suzhou. We began at the Suzhou Museum – an elegantly designed building that […]
Day 3 Authors: Lily, Gab, Clare Morning Lecture We began the day three with a captivating lecture on Chinese intellectual property law presented by Professor Liu Yongpei. It was a very informative lecture which delved into the nitty-gritty of trademark, copyright and patent law. For many of the us, this was our first encounter with […]
Our last day on tour started with a bracing walk up to a lookout point near Rawnsley Bluff, to be rewarded with glorious views back into Ikara (Wilpena Pound). Then a long drive back to Adelaide. It will take a few days for all of the experiences to sink in. Over 7 days we […]

A long drive from Arid Recovery to Iga Warta in the Gammon Ranges. Welcome to country by Terry Coulthard.

Today was the day that we would embark upon a journey to the American Congress, the institution responsible for countless important domestic and international decisions. After an early breakfast at the hotel we departed […]
Eager to make the most out of our first and only free day in Washington, we started off with a 6am wake-up call in order to watch the sunrise over the National Mall. Though it was a brisk morning in D.C., we ventured to the Lincoln Memorial where we were lucky enough to be one […]
