Shanghai Gubei Garden

... we know that there were multiple locations in Shanghai. So we, of course, went to the wrong one.
... know there is something different about us!
I've no idea where we are. Looking out of the window looks very similar to lots of parts of China we have been through, this really is a vast, vast country!
At some stage we have changed direction and are now travelling in the opposite way! Most of our carriage have got out, but the fascinated children are still here, still staring as they walk past!

Unmarried women over about 27 are considered to be left on the shelf, and the Chinese word for them literally translates as 'leftovers' - bit harsh!) Pretty funny for me, but hugely popular it would seem, it definitely drew a crowd!

... 2 year olds know how to wear me out. The cutest thing I've seen so far was Friday afternoon in school. We had a nice thunderstorm and the kids were enjoying it but they couldn't see out the window of our room so they pulled up chairs and were watching out the window and kept saying thunder and lightning in Chinese. It has rained the past 3 days, but the good thing is that it is cooling down a bit and it's not as humid.
