Day 3

Yay! We are finally in Shanghai!!

Our flight left for Shanghai at 11:30 so it was around 3pm that we arrived to our hotel.

An exciting part of our morning (for Mrs K at least) was finding Starbucks. A few of the girls had a yummy treat there too.

After arriving in Shanghai, we drove to our hotel in the bus. We had a competition to see who could see the Pearl Tower first. Although it was smoggy, Mrs K won and spotted it first.

We settled in to our rooms for a little while. We then rode the MET train for the first time- so busy but so much fun!

We ate dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant, although we did need to turn our pizza order into a takeaway order because it took a little while to come out. As we frantically ate our pizza, we walked to the Shanghai Circus. The Circus was incredible with so many talented acrobats, gymnasts and stunt people. We won’t give away any of the secrets but we each purchased a DVD of the performance as a momento.

Before returning to our hotel, we randomly joined in with a big group of local people dancing and singing on the side of the road. Our whole travelling group joined in, singing and dancing along with them. The kids were a giant hit with the local people. Mrs K caught it all on tape- a memory to cherish (or to keep for when we all need a little giggle)  😉

A busy but exciting day. We are looking forward to spending a bit of money at the markets tomorrow before heading to Suzhou in the afternoon. We will visit the Pearl Tower and the Bund River area when we return to Shanghai after our stay in Suzhou.

Missing everyone back home, thank you for all of your comments. We are reading them all and they are making us really happy.
