Still pretty exhausted from the heavy walking the previous day, we stayed in Shanghai today and visited the people's square and main shopping boulevard - Nanjing Road.
You will find the architecture very modern, stylish and extremely diversified. The governmental buildings are tastefully done, even though they do appear to have a certain political flair. Outside one of the buildings was a sole dissenter - a woman holding a speech to a crowd of no one. Pointed toward the building, she held her manuscript and in tasteful form, read her issues. It did not appear that the wheels of government were overly concerned.
The promenade is a collection of western style shopping centers. It appears to be more than just shops, but a whole collection of malls - possibly a dozen malls, each with another thirty stores.
Dinner was superb at Madame Zhus' kitchen. Once again we had a wide assortment of dishes - marinated beef, steamed fish, Peking duck, bean curd, steamed broccoli.
The impressive skyline of Shanghai was magnificent. Buildings are lit until 10PM and make a true easel of colors. Todd and I went out with temperatures at 0 celcius, but the wind chill made shooting photos desiring a warmer evening. Memories that will last a lifetime.
