One word description: picturesque
Pryce and I had little time to really research what Shanghai had to offer. We booked our flights very last minute and held on to our coattails as we left our group to go visit our friends as well as Noah.
Luckily, our friends are fabulous tour guides! We taxied over to Yu Garden and its surrounding areas. I had "tourist" written all over me as I tried to snap photos left and right.
We made our way through the gardens....three adults, a teen and four children under the age of 6....and a whole lot of others:) The children did well but our little Noah was d.o.n.e. done by the end. Poor guy, walking is not his thing!
It was just so neat....the little bridges, the quaint little gazebos (probably not what they call them!)...
the Weeping Willow trees, the koi ponds, and the people....people watching in the US is one thing but China takes it to a new level!
We have visited Beijing, Hong Kong, and now Shanghai. Shanghai is, by far, my favorite large Chinese city. It is a clean NYC.....it was really amazing to me how clean it was.
And the architecture in this part of the city was amazing.
This is the funniest picture to me. The guy in the background sat and stared at Pryce for what seemed like forever. Reality, it was more like 10 minutes. He literally looked at him just like he is pictured....no real expression but just staring. Pryce, who had no idea that that the guy was even there, proceeded to play with Noah and the other children....I am guessing the guy could not figure out what in the world an American teen was doing with four Chinese kiddos. Hilarious.
