We went to some city built on water that was like an older version of Venice. There were cats carved everywhere… After that, back to the bund where we were yesterday. The overcast skies actually cleared up today and I could see blue! After some picture taking, we went to dinner in a mall and back to the bund afterwards for some night pictures of the most famous spot in Shanghai. This was the last day of my trip. Unfortunately, I had to fly back to Vancouver the next day and hopefully not be jet lagged for work.
Went around town checking out the local attractions. Well, mostly checking out the Bund. The architecture is very diverse. Some of you may know that Shanghai is an international business city. The population is diverse and the the buildings reflect the different peoples that live here. You’ll probably notice that many of the buildings are very european… that’s because they built them long ago. I didn’t think the humidity could get any worse but today, it was raining when we stepped out. When the rain stopped, the sun took over and all the rain that was on the ground started to vapourize. It was trying to breath over a pot of boiling water.
After another day of walking, I noticed that my feet were really swollen. They were like really plump, retaining a lot of water. Must be the humidity… For dinner, we went through these old alley ways that were transformed into hip urban shops. I can’t believe the crazy amount of white people hanging out at the bars in this area.
