Duke University, Kunshan, China

After the final exams, Fred and I decided to take a walk around Yangcheng lake outside of Shanghai, and to take a look at the new branch of his school, Duke University, in China. The school is also situated near the huge lake.

On the lake there was a four star hotel, Fairmont Hotel, looking down at the lake from the top floor restaurant.
