... of tennis balls. Google later confirming Karen had it right, they are specially bred for fighting and have been for centuries.
Although I should have known to expect it, the back alley pet shops were a fascinating mixture of intrigue and revulsion with the curiously exotic variety and the apalling conditions they were kept in. Apart from that, it was pure delight to meander through the jumble of weird and wonderful local shops and street stalls, before a few ...
... un puente y te pedian unos 12€. Estamos locos? Xd Asi que no pagamos y estuvimos viendo la zona de las afueras donde la gente normal vive y intentando cruzar otros puentes que nos llevaran al centro sin pagar. mission fail cada puente tenia un vigilante xd. Nos encontramos una sesion fotografica de gente vestida con ropa tipo antigua y yo queria hacerle una foto pero el fotografo no me entendió y me obligó a sacarme fotos con la chica disfrazada ...
... couches on the balcony and I started up a conversation with a 28-year-old Frenchman who had spent three years in China. He took an interest in our study abroad program and detailed numerous attractions to hit up while we are here. We quickly left the club for whatever reason, even though I found it rather welcoming. This created quite the dispute, since, even though there are about 600 clubs in Shanghai, apparently none exist that provide a utopian-style ...
... couple of hours. After this we ventured to the area called the French Concession; this isn’t on any Chinese maps but the guidebook says that it was where the Europeans settled when they came to China so all the buildings and shop fronts don’t look Chinese. We even spotted a sign for the Champs Elleyse!

The next morning we decided to walk to Lu Xun Park. Hannah and I bought a Starbucks drink on the way, and oh my F it was amazing. I had a caramel frappuccino, for those who are interested (which should be everyone). Don't even worry, I documented it both on my video AND regular ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Longemont Shanghai
This hotel has a beautiful view of the Shanghai skyline. We booked on agoda.com and got a club level room on the 48th floor for a phenomenal deal. It included free internet, drinks and breakfast. If you want a scrumptious pastry or just need to get your clothes washed visit the Wash Bakery which is less than a half a block out the front door of the hotel. They sell pastries and coffee and for about $10 will wash and dry your laundry. Especially delicious is the coconut raisin pastry.
