... a flower which expanded from a dried ball as the tea stewed, I also got some quail eggs along with a couple of sweet things and these squares which seemed to be used to clear your pallet of taste so that one food would not blend with another. It was all pretty good and was a nice start to my first day. Afterwards I headed to the Yuyuan Gardens. These were really lovely, being very quiet which was a nice change compared to the city. It was a great walk around. I carried ...
... We ordered milk shakes, fries, onion rings, and ice-cream cake. It was delicious!
You're probably thinking to yourself, "How could you get so excited about care packages, foot massages, and milk shakes?!" Well, all of those things were reminders that God cares enough to send little pieces of joy my way. God has shown me love and care through the people He's placed in my life... old friends and new.
... arriving about 10 minutes late.
Coming home was no problem at all. I told Michael in a note I would stand outside on the sidewalk when I got back but when I got back I couldn't remember which building was their building. Things look very different from 23 stories up than at ground level. But I had my camera and I checked the photos I had taken up at their apartment and finally ...
... say downright bizarre. From the outside it looked like a spikey cube that could be compared to a pin-cushion or, as Mary saw it, a buzz-cut. The spikes were fibre-optic tubes that moved subtly in the wind. On the inside of the cube (the ‘seed cathedral’, to call it by its proper name) you could see the ends of the fibre optic tubes which broadened to flat plastic tips, each of which contained a seed or two. This was the last pavilion we entered ...

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.
