Shanghai // part two

We were up bright and early to take on another full day in Shanghai. China2019_52
Our first stop was to Fuxing Park. It was full of people dancing, flying kites, doing tai chi and these cool Chinese characters written with water on the ground. China2019_53China2019_54China2019_55China2019_56
Our next stop was Tianzifang, and our goal was to not get lost in the alleys upon alleys of shops. China2019_57China2019_58China2019_59China2019_60China2019_61China2019_62
After a break for some Hunan cuisine in the French Concession, we were off to the Jade Buddha Temple. An absolutely beautiful place, just maybe not the best place to take Everett. Just ask Marcus…China2019_63China2019_64China2019_65China2019_66China2019_67China2019_68
After piling back into the van, we were off through a channel tunnel to visit the Pudong side of Shanghai. It is home to three of the world’s largest buildings – all built right next to each other. We took a quick ride up to the top and enjoyed the views for awhile. China2019_69China2019_70China2019_71China2019_72China2019_73China2019_74China2019_75China2019_76China2019_77
This day also happened to be my birthday, so for dinner that evening we popped over to the Waldorf Astoria for drinks at the bar, followed by food at Grand Brasserie.China2019_80China2019_81China2019_82
The following morning we hung out at the hotel for a bit and then headed to the train station for our return trip home. Everett’s favorite item purchased on the trip were these garbage bins, complete with sorting cards. China2019_83China2019_84
And another check-in with grandma and Fitzie back in Beijing: this little guy loved going to the market!China2019_78China2019_79
