The second full day in Shanghai we had an easy start after 10 hours sleep. We took a city bus tour that took us to Pudong. We admired the new high rise buildings that we see
wherever the bus takes us. Each of them has something special. We bussed and walked and walked. The weather was much cooler than yesterday, it was cloudy all day. After lunch we went back to the hotel to get something warmer and testing out the internet connection in the hotel. I also phoned my mother using Skype. I could not login in my Travelpod.com account. I found out later that this is only possible through my Facebook account.
The East Nanjing pedestrian shopping street was a great disappointment, too modern, too noisy, too many street sellers. We walked further to the Seagull restaurant on the water, where we had a nice dinner. After a wall back on the Bund we were back in the hotel at 19:45. Tired, but with a good feeling for the day.
