Out on the Town
Last night Stacy, Meghan, Courtney, Krissy, Jen and I went down to the Pu River in the evening to explore. We started out by taking the subway to the pearl tower which is absolutely gorgeous at night. We then ventured down to the river and found a little restaurant with seating outside along the river. Us girls ordered cocktails and really enjoyed the scenery. Every boat that went by had lights on it except for the garbage barges. My favorite boat was the media boat. It had a huge screen on the side of the boat the size of a movie theater screen that flashed advertisements every few seconds. All of us girls really took in all the beauty that Shanghai had to offer. At ten o'clock sharp the lights turned off. This was a little surprising to me because in Minneapolis lights would stay on all night. Ten seemed early to turn them off, but anyways we had a wonderful evening enjoying the Shanghai skyline at night.
